Five teams from Clark High School, six from Plano Senior High, nine from Plano East and thirteen teams from Plano West Senior High School competed on October 28 at the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) Battle of the Brains high school programming contest. The UT Dallas Computer Science Department has been conducting the statewide “Battle of the Brains" for over a decade. Competition teams have up to three students each, so nearly 100 Plano ISD students competed in the competition. Teams are ranked according to the number of problems that they successfully solve, with winners solving the most problems. Typically five or six problems at each level are provided for the teams.
At the advanced level, Plano West Senior High School teams received first and third places, and at the novice level, Plano West students earned third place.
