2015-2016 Programming Challenge
Cabarrus County Schools is proud to announce the 3rd year of the Cabarrus County Schools Programming Challenge. The challenge is designed to give students in our schools who have a love for programming and can use their skills to ethically design a viable solution to an educational or community problem the chance to create an app or program to solve the problem. The challenge will be open to Middle and High School students starting September 21, 2015, and the final Challenge Day will be held during the month of April.View the Documents page for more information about competing in the challenge. You will find samples from the 2015 challenge and the documents needed to compete in the 2015-2016 challenge.In the classroom, students are being asked more frequently to identify a problem and figure out a solution to that problem. This is a great way to challenge our students to think creatively and make their solutions a viable product.As the Programming challenge is developed, we hope to involve local businesses to partner with us to motivate and encourage our students. In particular we are looking for business professionals who can speak with students about technology careers or how to market their programs and apps after they have been created. If you know of anyone who might like to be a guest speaker, donate prizes for students, provide food on the challenge day, or help judge the challenge, please have them contact Betsy Bryan at email@example.com.
