MCIT Organizes Beaver Egypt Challenge

The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) is organizing Beaver Egypt Challenge, in collaboration with the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT), with the aim to encourage school students to study computer science.
The Beaver Challenge is an international initiative aiming to promote informatics and computational thinking among school students of different ages. The Challenge is organized in over 50 countries and joined by three million participants, where each participant gets 45 minutes to answer 12 questions that focus on logical thinking and computing.
Beaver Egypt Challenge involves providing a 45-hour scholarship to school students, during the summer vacation, to learn C++ programming language and improve their problem-solving skills. After completing the training, the students get the opportunity to participate in the contests qualifying for the Egyptian Olympiad in Informatics (EOI).
Applicants to Beaver Egypt Challenge must be Egyptian students enrolled in an Egyptian school, moving to the second or third preparatory or first secondary grades (born in 2006-2009), and not have received EOI programming scholarship before or participated in Beaver Egypt Challenge this year elsewhere. Applicants, in addition, must have a computer with a camera and Internet connection, and be fully familiar with the basics of computer, Internet and Zoom program.
Students applying to the Challenge will be asked to submit a proof of identity, such as their birth certificate, passport, or a certificate of school enrollment, in addition to a recent personal photo.
