Team Ireland go close at the Informatics Olympics in Russia

IOI2016-Pic1Like Ireland’s 400m sprinter Thomas Barr at the Rio Olympics, Team Ireland came very close to getting a Bronze medal at the Olympics of High-School Programming in Russia.

Teofil Camarasu, a sixth year student from Dundalk Community School came within 11 points of attaining a Bronze medal among 308 of the smartest young computer programmers from around the planet. 81 countries brought delegations to the prestigious 28th International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) in Kazan, Russia for one the toughest tests of these young students’ lives. The IOI is one of five international science Olympiads for secondary school students with this Olympiad focusing on computing science and information technology and was first initiated by UNESCO in 1989. Each student must solve 6 algorithmic problems over two days of competition, with points awarded for how quickly their coded solution runs against large data inputs.
