Ten Harker students have moved on to the invitational round of the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad! Seniors Swapnil Garg, Joanna Lin, Rajiv Movva and Derek Yen; juniors Rose Guan, Katherine Tian, Michael Wang and Katherine Zhang; Rishi Dange, grade 10; and Luisa Pan, grade 9, will take part in the next stage of the contest next week for a chance at eligibility to compete in the International Linguistics Olympiad in Prague this summer.
About 1,700 students compete in NACLO every year, solving linguistic puzzles developed by professionals in various linguistic fields. Problems tackled during the contest include translating languages into English, solving arithmetic problems written in other languages, and deciphering writing systems and using them to compose a text. Congratulations and best of luck to these 10 next week!
