Computing will once again be hosting the annual Strathmore Trophy on Monday 19th June 2017 from 10am-2.30pm. This year we are inviting teams of 4 S1/S2 pupils from local schools to visit us in the Queen Mother Building for the morning of 19th June. No prior programming experience or advanced planning will be needed as pupils will be briefed on the competition on the day, and there will be Computing staff and students on hand to provide assistance.
The day will begin in the Dalhousie Building (building no. 14 on the Campus Map) and then move to the Queen Mother Building, to start the activity. We will provide a sandwich lunch, before we will return to the Dalhousie Building to announce the winners.
This competition has now been running since 1996 and has been a great success. Mary, Countess of Strathmore, has donated the trophy which will be presented to the winning team by our special guest, from the British Computer Society (BCS), on the day.
Details of the competition will be revealed on the day.
