SU Math and Computer Science Club Hosts GullCode Challenge
SALISBURY, MD---Even though it was a Saturday, some 50 computer science students were hard at work inside Salisbury University’s Henson Science Hall.
They were competing for cash and prizes during the campus’ third GullCode computer programming challenge.
Each team received a set of problems to solve using either JAVA or C++ computer programming languages, which require logical or mathematical algorithms. They had four hours to complete the most problems correctly.
“This was our largest challenge yet,” said SU junior Charles Rusk, who co-organized it with senior Rob Close for the University’s Math and Computer Science Club.
Door prizes were donated by local businesses and the University’s STEM program. Participants also received t-shirts and items from NASA.
The event was sponsored by the Richard A. Henson School of Science and Technology and the Mathematics and Computer Science Department.
