Students Display Computer Programming Skills at Regional Competition

The event is held in partnership with DeSales University and Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21.
Students were given two hours to successfully solve 20 computer problems that could be translated into real-world applications. Using computer programming skills, they decoded problems ranging from routine savings calculations to more difficult spatial calculations, and even complex cryptography. Teams were awarded points based on successful completion of problems within specified timeframes.
Winners were: Emmaus High School, East Penn School District, 1st place; Moravian Academy, 2nd place; and Jim Thorpe High School, 3rd place. Other competitors included IU 20 teams from Nazareth High School and Saucon Valley High School, and IU 21 region high schools.
