Computer Science (UIL)

Computer Science (UIL)

Computer Science is one of several academic events sanctioned by the University Interscholastic League.

Computer Science is designed to test students' programming abilities. It is not the same as the Computer Applications contest, which tests students' abilities to use word processing, spreadsheet, and database applications software, including integration of applications.

Computer Science began during the 1990-91 scholastic year as strictly a team event. It was not scored as an individual event until the 1996-97 school year.

Famous quotes containing the words computer and/or science:

    What, then, is the basic difference between today’s computer and an intelligent being? It is that the computer can be made to see but not to perceive. What matters here is not that the computer is without consciousness but that thus far it is incapable of the spontaneous grasp of pattern—a capacity essential to perception and intelligence.
    Rudolf Arnheim (b. 1904)

    There are some things in science which should be brought to light. There are others, doctor, which should be left alone.
    Griffin Jay, Maxwell Shane (1905–1983)
