Gaming Competition Part of Computer Science Education Week

More than 50 students from University of Maine computing and information science professor George Markowsky’s COS 125 Introduction to Problem Solving Using Computer Programming will compete from 11 a.m.–1 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 13 at Soderberg Auditorium in Jenness Hall in the annual fall semester computer gaming exhibit and competition. The event, one of many organized at UMaine in observation of National Computer Science Education Week Dec. 10–14, is free and open to the public. Visitors will have a chance to try out the computer games and vote for three top teams, which will receive modest cash prizes. Though many students in the class are computer science students, Markowsky says students from other academic disciplines also take the class. The game-writing competition and exhibit is a hands-on, interactive way to kindle the interest and imaginations of students in the class, he says. Markowsky has listed a schedule of talks and activities for the week on his website.
