Programmers Place Second at MSOE

Sixteen current and former AP Computer Science students competed at the Milwaukee School of Engineering Opportunity Conference on Friday, November 21. The competition was their largest ever with 37 teams competing from 11 high schools in southeast Wisconsin and Illinois. Students worked for 2.5 hours in teams of four to create solutions for 9 programming problems of varying difficulty. Problems were worth either 10, 20, or 40 points. Incorrect solutions submitted to the judges were penalized three points, but teams could then resubmit a different solution for partial credit. No team solved all 9 problems correctly. The Whitewater team of Gabe Heller, Wentao Guo, Chamath Gunawardena, and Leif Sahyun solved seven problems correctly and placed second overall. The Whitewater team of Mitch Dalzin, Devin Samaranayake, Zach Brantmeier, and Nick Kuzoff solved five of the problems correctly and finished tied for fifth overall.
