Elijah Snow, Senior
Captain of the Computer Science Team
With encouragement from Linda Woessner, Elijah began participating in Computer Science competitions and competed in the Flower Mound UIL invitational placing third in individuals. Additionally, he finished in the top 10 in state during the Best of Texas Round, and the Lockheed Martin Code Quest. In UIL District, he placed second individually, while the Advanced Team took home fourth place. Most notably, the team won the UIL Regional competition in May.
ABOUT ELIJAH: Known for his cool, calm and collective demeanor, the ringleader of the Carroll compsci program decided to join the team based on his interest in video games. Under Woessner’s guidance, Elijah became more interested in the program and began attending various competitions with junior teams until he was selected for the UIL team. Outside of the Computer Science Team, Elijah participates in the Rubik’s Cube Club, which he assisted in founding, as well as Carroll’s National Merit and Math Honors Societies. He will be attending the World Cube Competition this month.
FAVORITE CLASS: Computer Science. “It’s the most interesting, and I enjoy problem solving!”
Linda Woessner says: “Elijah Snow is Captain of the Computer Science Team. The team competes regularly in programming competitions throughout the State. A programming competition consists of teams of three students with one computer. They are given a set of problems to solve by writing programs. The team that can solve the most problems within the given time wins! Winning requires teamwork, strategy, programming skills, and logic. Elijah was part of the UIL Academic Computer Science Team that represented the Dragons at State last year!”
