Computer Science club heads to the UMD Programming Contest

April 17, 2015

This weekend Computer Science club members Kim Lytle ’15, Sophie Kim ’15, Michaela Laurencin ’15, and Cori Williams ’17, along with team manager Katherine Jiang ’15 and Computer Science teacher Jean Wright, will be the first all-girl team to participate the in the University of Maryland High School Programming Contest. “I appreciate all the time and effort students have made being at practices in anticipation of this competition,” said Ms. Wright. “It really is an exciting event. We are making history being the first team made up of all girls since the contest started over 20 years ago.”

The contest brings talented students from high schools throughout the DC metropolitan area to the campus to participate in a three hour competition. Students competing in teams of four demonstrate their programming skills and problem solving abilities by attempting to solve several programming problems in Java, using the Eclipse programming environment, on Apple iBooks.

Good luck students!
