Students Display Computer Programming Skills at Regional Competition

The event is organized by Colonial IU 20 in partnership with DeSales University and Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21. Winners were: 1st place: Emmaus High School, East Penn School District; 2nd place: Southern Lehigh High School; 3rd place: Nazareth High School.
Students were given two hours to successfully solve 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.
