The UMD High School Programming Contest brings talented students from high schools throughout the DC metropolitan area to the campus to participate in a three hour competition. Students competing in teams of four demonstrate their programming skills and problem solving abilities by attempting to solve eight programming problems in Java, using the Eclipse programming environment, on Apple iBooks.
The 2006 Contest took place Saturday, March 11, 2006, at the CSIC Building at the University of Maryland, College Park. 35 teams from Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia competed in the contest.
The Department of Computer Science sponsors a free summer program for high school students to learn Java. You may find details here.
