ACM Student Chapter, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri Campus and Cochin Refineries School, Ambalamugal, organized a one day workshop on Competitive Programming and Problem Solving for High School Teachers, on November 12, 2016. 108 participants from over 46 schools across Cochin benefited from the workshop. The Workshop was inaugurated by Sujatha Madhav, Head – Strategic Projects at TCS Digital Enterprise (Kochi) at Tata Consultancy Services.
The ultimate aim of the workshop was to create an awareness amongst teachers to spot such hidden talent, for which teachers need to groom themselves with computing technology and the latest trends. The second phase of the workshop would involve preparing students for some of the most exciting Olympiads where they will find many opportunities to collaborate, build, and gain valuable experience while participating in programming events that are organized by national and international bodies. The focus is to bring out a culture of a vibrant community of teachers and students that develop environmentally, culturally, and economically sustainable technologies.
