For the 20th National Olympiad in Informatics, Hwa Chong has once again achieved excellent results! The team garnered a total of 5 Golds, 3 Silvers, 1 Bronze and 1 Honourable Mention. Furthermore, the team obtained the top secondary school award as well as the runner-up junior college award. Finally, two members of the team obtained the top secondary school contestants award.
We would like to thank our seniors and teachers (Mr Koh Kim Tian & Ms Goh Keng Wah) for their continued support and guidance, and will strive to do even better in future editions!
Hwa Chong racked quite a few awards at the 19th annual Singapore National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI). This year we continued our tradition of excellence taking home 10 medals ( 100% medal rate! ), 2 Golds 6 Silvers & 2 Bronzes. We also took home the runner up for best secondary school & the youngest medallist! We hope this is just the beginning to another exciting year of competitive programming activities in Hwa Chong.
A huge thanks to our seniors( Wang ZhiJian, Gan “William” Wei Liang, Mark Theng & Bernard ), teachers ( Mr Koh KT & Mrs Goh KW ), student trainers ( Damian, Ming Jiang, Wei Seng & Jiefeng ) as well as the NUS Dec training staff & students ( Wen Yuen[RI], Guang Xuan[RI], Jacob[NUSH], Sean Pek[ex-NUSH], Howe Choong Yin[ex-NUSH] & Ranald[ex-RI] ) and for teaching and challenging the limits of what we could do 😊!
We tinker with cybersecurity and we’re quite good at it too. WhiteHacks is a 2-day competition, organised by Singapore Management University, under the banner of Whitehat Society, where you pit your skills against the other teams in a Jeopardy-style Capture the Flag competition!
We can proudly say that the HCIRS team has done us proud and clinched 2nd place, beating the next competitor by over 3 times in points.
With promos over, it’s time to focus on preparing for Open House 2016!
We’ve offered to create an open house app for the school – and we will deliver! Work is currently in progress for the Open House Application!
This Open House, we’re planning several special things to showcase the exciting world of InfoComm and Robotic technology, and of course, the hard work and dedication put into these creations:
HC Robot Soccer League
What?!? Robots playing soccer in Hwa Chong?
Yes, you heard that right. Hwa Chong Robotics regularly participates in the prestigious RoboCup Competition, and it’s time to show off how cool these soccer-playing robots really are!
Live Hacking Session
Don’t worry, we’re only going to hack our own computers.
In today’s world, cyber security is crucial. But before anyone can begin protecting their systems, we must first know how others would potentially exploit security systems. That’s where the hacking comes in.
Here at Hwa Chong InfoComm, we want our members to learn how to protect their computers, servers and websites. So look forward to a few of our members tearing up a virtual machine!
Website and Game Showcase
Obviously, here at Hwa Chong InfoComm and Robotics Society, we also create things – cool games, stylish websites and smexy robots. Get a glimpse into what you can potentially do at Hwa Chong InfoComm and Robotics Society!
So what are you waiting for? Prepare to feast your eyes on some cool stuff on 12 Jan 2016!
