UPD Reigns Supreme in Clash of the Brains

Another victory for UP Diliman's
Department of Computer Science, which is definitely experiencing a golden year!*

Congratulations to Ardee Aram, Michael Chua, Prem Rara, and Linda Sarmiento, champions of this year's Clash of the Brains, a computer science quiz show held by the LSCS. Ma'am Joyce Avestro coached the winning team, which beat ADMU, FEU, UST, and MIT.

The UP team actually got off to the worst start, finishing dead last after the first round. The team managed to claw back to contention in the second canto (third in the standings).

However, it was in the homestretch (difficult round) where UP bared its fangs, reeling one correct answer after another. The result is history.

Again, congrats to the quartet. You did the University proud!


*The whole acad year has been a parade of honors for the UP Diliman DCS, from the UP ACM Int'l Excellence award to the Imagine Cup to the PESO semifinals to the TMTC to the BPI-DOST Science Award. Whew. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Hopefully, more to come.
