Lockheed Martin Code Quest 2019

Three Lower Sixth students represented Ardingly College in the Lockheed Martin Code Quest, an international coding competition, where teams of two to three students work together for 2.5 hours to solve coding problems and complete the “quest”. The competition consists of 15-20 challenging problems created by Lockheed Martin engineers and computer programmers. The UK heat was held at Lockheed Martin’s site in Whiteley. The global security and aerospace company employs approximately 105,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.

A great day was had by the team from Ardingly who accrued enough points from completing their challenges to finish fifth out of the 18 teams competing. The top three teams had all been to the competition in previous years, yet it was the first time the College had entered the quest. The team of Vitus Ng, Benjamin Ward and Antons Pigoznis did themselves and the school very proud.
