Team from the Computer Laboratory wins the IBM UK “Thinkpad Challenge”

Last Friday, the Cambridge undergraduate team were overall winners of this year’s IBM UK “Thinkpad Challenge” competition held at IBM Hursley. The Cambridge entry had been selected as best among last year’s second-year group projects, on the basis of their Logo interpreter implementation. Cambridge has become the first university, among the 18 that compete, to win the Thinkpad Challenge twice.

The department congratulates Robert Bradford, William Fisher, Charles Mollison, Christopher Williams and Jonathan Worthington, who were rewarded with an IBM Thinkpad each. (Helen Yeung and Davey Jose, the remaining members of the group, were not able to get to Hursley for the competition.) A cash prize of £1000 has also been awarded to the department.
