On November 8, 2014, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company will host another Code Quest Contest at their facilities in Marietta, Georga. Register now.
On April 5, 2014, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics hosted the Third Annual Code Quest Computer Programming Competition in Fort Worth, Texas. In a partnership with the Computer Science Teachers of America, Aeronautics hosted nearly 150 students for a 2.5 hour coding competition. Congratulations to the “Seven Lakes Blue” of Seven Lakes High School for winning first place.
The "Quest" is a computer programming competition consisting of 15 – 20 questions created by Aeronautics engineers and computer programmers. Teams of two to three students work together for 2.5 hours to answer the questions and complete the Quest.
Each year, teams are 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.
The annual competition also allows students to tour the Lockheed Martin factory and F-35 Production Line.
