CHS Students to Compete in Computer Programming Competition

Posted: Updated:

A group of Charlottesville High School students is taking part in an out-of-this world competition. The Best All-Around Club of Nerds, or BACON, is among the top 20 teams in the Zero Robotics Competition.

It is one of the most challenging computer programming competitions at the high school level. The semifinal is sponsored by NASA and MIT.

The students say they hope to do as well as they did last year.

"We came in second last year and if we came in around the same place or even better I'd say it was a fulfilling of the older students teaching us the values that would help lead us on to victory,” said Chau Dao, a member of BACON.

The team is still practicing. The semifinal round of the competition takes place next month.
