Monthly $20.00

Students will work on the Looney Challenge, created by the engineering department at MSU, to learn more about computing and computer science.

From the MSU website (http://ou.montana.edu/csoutreach/looney-challenges.html):

Looney the Robot and his trainer, Hunter Lloyd, Professor in the Computer Science Department, have met many students from Montana giving the “How to Train Your Robot” assembly. Over 6500 kindergarten through 12th grade students watched Hunter, Looney and friends during the 2013-2014 school year. After the assemblies, Hunter and Looney received emails from students, teachers, and parents asking for more information about how to continue learning more about computing and robotics. With their requests in mind, we decided to create Looney Challenges.

Our Looney Challenge goal:

To encourage Montana students from kindergarten through high school to continue to learn about computing and, eventually, attend and graduate from a university with a degree in computer science. Of course, Looney hopes our Montana students will attend Montana State University – GO CATS!

This year’s Looney Challenge will begin September 15th, 2014 and conclude June 30th, 2015. Students can join at any time and earn points to win prizes! The twenty highest point earners will win a Raspberry Pi! Also, stay tuned to the Looney Challenges webpage for updates and to see how the page evolves. We will be adding fun tidbits, hints, videos and interesting facts about Looney!
