Scholastica Inter-school Olympiad in Informatics held in Dhaka
The Scholastica Inter-school Olympiad in Informatics (SIOI) 2018, a programming competition for seventh to twelfth graders, was held at the school’s senior campus in Dhaka’s Mirpur on Friday. In addition to the programming competition, the Olympiad also hosted an interactive workshop to help young programmers enhance their programming skills. Around 100 students from different schools took part in the programing contest and workshop. The competition brought together the next generation of Bangladeshi computer enthusiasts, both experts and novices, to celebrate and encourage their passion for programming. Redwanul Haque, a grade-12 student  from Earth House Alternative School, won the contest for programing in Python language, while Mashia Ishtiaq, a grade-12 student from Hurdco International School became the first runner up. Md Wasim Zaman, a class X student from Scholastica’s Uttara campus, won the second runner up position. In the workshop, six groups consisting of two to five students each presented their innovative ideas in the field of computer science and technology. Professor Mohammad Kaikobad of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) said that he was amazed to see the quality of the students’ programing skills as the tasks assigned in the contest were difficult. He also said that winners of this Olympiad will get direct entry to compete in the 30th International Olympiad in Informatics to be held in Japan this year. “Our youth have the capacity to compete in the international arena as the projects I have seen here are of international standard in quality,” the professor said. The first SIOI was held in 2017, with the aim of encouraging the next generation of Bangladeshi programmers.
