Computer Programming Students Excel in Competition!
Last week CDA students Jonathan Browne, Andrew Havard and Kirsten Browne competed in the Spring '19UT Dallas Battle of the Brains: HS Programming Competition. They placed 3rd in the Advanced Category out of 117 teams from across the state! The competition involves trying to solve 10 programming problems during a 3-hour period on the UT Dallas campus.
"This was the first time that UT Dallas CS students crafted the entire event. All three (UTD students) had experienced competing in high school contests and were able to use that experience to craft a contest that they felt would challenge all levels of competitors while still being fun for everyone."

The CDA team of Andrew, Jonathan and Kirsten completed 5 out of the 10 questions in the allotted time beating schools from Plano, Houston and Austin and elsewhere around the state. The contest drew more than 117 teams comprising approximately 390 high school students from all over North Texas, with teams coming from top high school schools in the DFW Metroplex, Abilene, Austin, and Houston.
