Students from SCS participate in the ACM Programming Competition most years. The team is supported financially and so there is no cost for participation: registration, food, accommodation and transport are all paid for. In 2011 a single team took part coming 23rd out of 122 teams. Requirements for participation are: enthusiasm, teamwork and a knowledge of algorithms, although the latter can be acquired. The 2014 competition for the Eastern Central North America (ECNA) region will be held at the U. Windsor on the 8th November.
