Nottingham High School student Rowan Lee, 18 from Chilwell, who has already been acknowledged as one of the top programmers in the country, has finished in the top four of the British Informatics Olympiad, a national algorithmic program-writing problem solving competition. He will now join the national team who will travel to Kazakhstan in July to compete in the 2015 International Olympiad.
Whilst in Kazakstan, Rowan will not only have the opportunity to win an international award, but will also enjoy VIP treatment and get the chance to socialise with contestants from over 80 different countries that are taking part in the competition.
Kevin Fear, Headmaster at Nottingham High School, said: “We are extremely proud of Rowan and his achievements. It is a great opportunity for him to be part of the national team and compete at an international level. I am sure he will take full advantage of the experience and I am confident that he will do well.”
