Source Code – 2017 Michigan B/C Trial Event
Developed by Michigan Science Olympiad, Source Code is a programming event that challenges students to solve problems by reading and writing code. This is an excellent opportunity for students to explore the vast field of computer science and learn skills that are currently used in many technology related industries.

Michigan Science Olympiad ran this trial event at the 2016 State Tournament and select 2016 Regional Tournaments. This event will be trialed again at the 2017 Michigan State Tournament. Contact your regional director to inquire if the event will be run in your region.
