The School of Computing had 4 academics judging at it, with Dr. Mark Roantree having a hectic day as overall Judging Co-ordinator.
Alex O'Connor from the School of Computing said "As a first-time judge the scale of the event was almost overwhelming. The category which I looked at included many technically impressive challenges, and the entrants were all bright, enthusiastic, and suitably proud of their hard work. I suspect many of them have bright futures in technology"
