Code Quest is a computer programming competition for high school students. The competition is designed and hosted by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Fort Worth, Texas and will be held this year on Saturday, April 6, 2013.
The "Quest" consists of 15 – 20 questions created by Aeronautics engineers and computer programmers. Teams will consist of two - three students and each will have 2.5 hours to work as a team to answer the questions. Each school may only have up to two teams enter the competition.
Teams will be broken into two divisions: Novice and Advanced. Novice includes any student who has had no more than one school year of competing in programming contests and no more than one year of programming experience either in or out of a class. Coaches will determine if a student is novice or advanced, and a team with even one advanced student must be classified as advanced.
Following the competition, lunch will be provided as well as a tour of the Lockheed Martin factory and F-35 Production Line.
On the day of the competition, teams are encouraged to show up in costume — exemplifying their team unity. Awards will be given for the “best team costume,” and even door prizes and gift bags! Awards will also be provided to the top three teams in each division. Registration is limited, so be sure to sign up early!
Attendees at this event may be photographed or videotaped for publicity purposes.
