“Ramey School’s coding team “Binary Bombers” participated in Lockheed Martin’s Code Quest 2021 on Saturday, April 24, 2021. Lockheed Martin's Code Quest competitions are international contests held every year for students in grades 6-12 [or their international equivalents]. Founded in 2012 at the Fort Worth facility, Code Quest events now span the globe, with 27 sites across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Poland, Australia, and Singapore. Teams are made of two to three high school students working together to solve coding problems.

Code Quest’s mission is to encourage young students to pursue their interests in computer programming and improve their skills in a competitive, yet fun and encouraging environment. Code Quest provide teachers with resources to improve the- quality of programming education.

The goal during this contest is to try to complete the quest by earning as many points as possible. Points are earned by writing software programs in Java, Python, C#, C++, or Visual Basic in order to solve a series of problems. The contest only lasts for two and a half hours, so team members need to solve as many problems as possible within that time.

 

Binary Bombers members are: Jeimy S., Wyatt A. and Nicolas P. lead by CTE teacher Mr. Oscar E. Colón.”
