Viral robot combat promotes computer programming

Christina Wu


Over 500 high school students from 94 secondary and international schools competed in the Fifth CityU-CS Robocode Contest, a computer game programming competition organised by the Department of Computer Science at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) in November.
Thirty-two teams, each comprising two students, reached the final on 8 November where Sheng Kung Hui Lui Ming Choi Secondary School proved victorious. The 1st and 2nd runners-up were Stewards Ma Kam Ming Charitable Foundation Ma Ko Pan Memorial College and Holy Trinity College, respectively.
In the competition, software robots developed by students competed against other robots in a battle arena. The aim of the contest was to help students learn how to compile computer codes and boost their interest in computer science through games.
