The Counting Bee™ was created by Scott Flansburg to help students improve their basic arithmetic skills and promote numeracy. The Counting Bee™ is an annual, fast-paced, and exciting STEM competition in which contestants are asked to calculate a broad selection of skip counting patterns with a varying degree of difficulty.
The 2019 Counting Bee is open for K-12 student’s at all public, private, charter, and home schools. Contestants will be placed in the appropriate age group based upon their age on the date of the finals. Based on a 15-second countdown, contestants will race to calculate as many correct answers as possible.
