Anudeep Golla, Hongi Chen, and Saurabh Totey participated in Lockheed Martin's Code Quest competition in South Denver in April 2018.  They blew the competition away, scoring 300 points.  The next highest team scored 175. Learn more about the CodeQuest competition.


For the first time 3 Fairview students, Anudeep Golla, Hannah Zhang, and Hongi Chen, participated in the American Computer Science League All-Star Contest in Rhode Island.


The team did a fantastic job.  There are two portions of the contest - a team programming portion in which they have 3 hours to solve a set of programming problems together.  The team earned a perfect score in this portion!  Then, there are is a short answer test that each member of the team solves individually.  They did well in this portion as well.  Anudeep and Hongi were both called to the stage for scoring among the highest in their division in the shorts section.  The team ended up tying for 7th in their division, trailing the number one scoring team by only 3 points (64 vs 67).

Congrats to our amazing students!
