A combined team of students from Brookfield Central High School and Brookfield East High School won first place at the MSOE Computer Programming Competition on November 18! They competed against 51 teams (204 students) of programmers from multiple states. This is the third year in a row that BCHS and BEHS have combined to win the competition.

The competition challenged teams to solve nine computer programming problems of varying difficulty during a specific amount of time. Each four-student team was allowed two laptops and the nine problems were able to be completed in any order. Points were awarded for successfully completing problems based on the difficulty level of the problem.

“These students have shown their passion for computer science by exhausting the available computer science courses at the high school level and proceeded to take advanced computer science classes at Marquette University,” said BCHS Computer Science teacher Ryan Osterberg. “I am very proud of these students and their awards are a result of their hard work and incredible talent.”

The winning team consisted of Dan Anderson (Junior, BCHS), Suchir Bhatt (Senior, BEHS), David Harmeyer (Senior, BCHS), and Tim Vrakas (Senior, BEHS).
