We are a group of students representing Carleton University at this year’s annual Computer Science Games. CS Games is one of the most unique computing competitions in the region, challenging top Computer Science students from around the country against each other with skill-testing challenges in their field. We aim to bring students together with a passion for technology to put Carleton on the map when it comes to Computer Science. Help support the Carleton University team by aiding with the cost of tickets, transportation and training.
The Computer Science Games is an annual collegiate competition in the field of Computer Science, dating back to its inception in 2003. It consists of challenges involving every realm of computer science, from hardware hacking to web development to discrete mathematics. Last year our team placed 1st in the Security challenge, 4th in the Mobile competition and 3rd for our team video. This year we’re looking to capitalize on our experience and add to our trophy collection to continue to make the School of Computer Science and Carleton University proud!
The event is being held in Montreal this year, and with tickets being $200 per person and transportation not included, the expense for students is significant. We ask for your help in reducing the costs of participation to increase participation for all team members regardless of their financial background. Any excess funds will be used to acquire hardware and other training resources, helping us succeed both this year and the next.
If you plan on supporting us financially, please consider doing so on November 27th as Carleton University will be matching up to $ 500,000 in donations on this day (up to $ 5000 per donation).
CS Games provides a unique opportunity for students to push themselves and develop their skills in a friendly yet challenging environment. By helping us reach our goal you will enable Carleton to be represented at this nation-wide competition. We believe that CS Games can serve to promote and motivate the Computer Science community at Carleton University. We ask for your help to make this possible.
