2020 Girls HS Programming Contest:
2 years ago we held our first annual Girls High School Programming Contest in February at both Cornell in Ithaca and Cornell Tech. This year's contest took place on February 8th, 2020 with other 30 teams.
The contest is an educational event open to all high school girls. Only limited programming experience is required. The event will include a one-hour introduction into programming contests. The actual contest will last for two hours and will feature a collection of problems ranging from very easy to medium hard. The participants will be grouped into teams of three ranging in levels of programming experience.
During the contest, teaching assistants will help you recognize and solve problems through traditional debugging techniques. They will offer support and guidance, but will not be writing code for you. The goal of the assistants is to teach you how to recognize and solve these problems by yourself.
The team that solves the most problems wins. Ties are broken by the amount of time used to solve the problems.
