The New Jersey Institute of Technology has opened registration for its annual high school programming competition, to be held in April. The competition is sponsored by the computer science department
The competition pits teams of three high school student programmers, supervised by a coach, against one another to complete programming assignments in an allotted time period. The teams compete in the institute’s high tech computer science labs. Work is ranked based upon the number of correct programs delivered within a predefined time period. High schools are limited to entering only one team each.
Last year’s event drew more than 150 participants, ranging from sophomores to seniors, with 40 schools participating.
The 2008 competition will be held April 18 in the NJIT Campus Center, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. High school teams can register
via the NJIT web site.
