Chastity Davis Captures 1st in Programming at Computer Fair

2018 CAIU Com Fair BANN

The Capital Area Intermediate Unit hosted the annual Regional Computer Fair on Tuesday, March 27, 2018. Chastity Davis (’18) earned FIRST PLACE in the Programming Division for her project “The Element.” Chastity created an app that allows high school students to choose their course selections for their schedules. Each course has defined prerequisites that allow or prevent a student from choosing a course based on the student’s course history and academic grades in required courses. As the student selects their courses a list is compiled for the student to view. Chastity chose the title “The Element” because the app is a basic tool that every student should use. She branded “The Element” with the symbol “El” to reflect a scientific symbol; i.e. a basic element.

If you think Chastity’s project sounds simple, take a look below at a very small portion of the code she created. Every single symbol, space, letter, etc had to be exact. Chastity built this app from scratch. Now that’s no small feat!

The first place winners in each of the five divisions at the regional level advance to the state competition. Chastity will face other programming winners from around the state on May 22 at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. Congratulations, Chastity! We’re rooting for you!
