Each year, Purdue University sponsors a programming challenge during CS Ed Week. While the purpose of CS Ed Week has become a way to raise awareness of computer science for those who have not previously had an opportunity to engage in coding activities, this challenge is for existing students that have found their way to a CS classroom.
Students should form groups of 2-4 members to attempt to solve as many of the three problems that they wish. Upon finishing, they should submit their solutions to their CS teachers, who can then forward them on to Phil Sands (firstname.lastname@example.org). The solutions will be reviewed and graded by hand at Purdue, and one "best" solution will be selected for each problem among all this year's entries. Winning teams will receive some prizes from Purdue in January.
Attached is a flyer that contains all of this year's problems. Thanks for all that you do for your students, and wish them best of luck in this year's challenge from all of us at Purdue University!
