Seven Upper School students and one Middle School student participated in Emmaus High School’s student-led Computer Programming Competition on Friday, February 22nd. Working in two teams, the students represented Moravian Academy against students from eight other local high schools.
As part of the competition, the students were given three hours to complete a programming problem set containing ten problems. Each time they finished a problem they submitted their program to the student judges and were awarded up to five points based on the success of the program when sample input values were entered. Each team was allowed two computers, no use of the internet, and could use any coding language. Both our teams used the Python language.
