CS4HS Lambda Lift Competition
March 19 to April 16, 2014
To encourage interest in computer science and particularly
computational problem solving, Florida Tech is holding a Lambda Lift
competition for high school students in Brevard county. We have a
Lambda Lift enivronment and students design an automated miner who can
navigate the mine, avoid hazzards, and collect valuables/lambdas
quickly. The automated miner will be in the Java programming
language. The competition is supported in part by Google.
