April 8, 2015 - The University of South Dakota's Department of Computer Science hosted their 35th Annual High School Programming Contest on Wednesday, April 8th. In past years, this competition has been comprised of various programming challenges to be solved during a testing period. This year, to add some extra excitement to the competition, students were asked to program a robot to navigate through a maze. Each group was provided an ActivityBot robot and given three months to assemble it and write their code. On April 8th, 36 teams from 21 schools gathered on the campus of USD to show off their accomplishments. Congratulations to all who participated!
