Purdue University’s Department of Computer Science is encouraging Indiana K-12 students to participate in their annual Programming Challenge held in conjunction with CS Education Week (Dec. 5 – Dec. 11, 2016). The problems are designed for students to work on in teams of up to 4 students. Students may submit solutions to any of the three problems, and each problem will be looked at independently. The best solution for each problem will win a prize, and all students with correct solutions will have their name published on the Purdue Computer Science website.
This week we will have an opportunity to meet up with one another during the annual Indiana Business Educators Association conference in Indianapolis. In addition to the excellent sessions planned for computer science teachers (see below), we will also be treated to a Thursday night social event sponsored by Nextech.
The Indiana Aspirations in Computing Competition Committee is pleased to invite high school young women throughout Indiana to apply for the Indiana Award for Aspirations in Computing. Their continued goal for 2016 is to have at least one girl from each Indiana high school apply. To reach this goal, they need your help. This award is sponsored by a consortium of Indiana universities and corporations and the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT). Please encourage students in your school to apply.
