Annual Math/Computer Day

The Department of Mathematics and Department of Computer Science have been hosting the Shippensburg University Math and Computer Science Day since 1958. This is a day when high school students visit Ship's campus to participate in math and computer programming competitions. Over fifty high schools from the central Pennsylvania region are invited and we anticipate a good turnout.

The 2014 event will be on Tuesday April 1, 2014 and sponsored by the Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of Mathematics

Register Now for the 2014 Event!


The Math Contest will consist of an individual test and a team quiz bowl. The team portion is in a math quiz bowl format; due to this format we can only allow the first twenty teams that respond to compete in the quiz bowl. Prizes will be awarded to the three highest-ranking individuals and three highest-ranking teams. Certificates will also be given to each individual who participates in the contest. The Math Contest and Quiz Bowl are restricted to juniors only.

The SU Programming Contest for high school students is sponsored by Shippensburg University’s Programming Team.  The teams will try to develop programs to correctly solve as many of the six contest problems as they can. Trophies will be awarded to the three highest-ranking teams. Certificates will also be given to each individual who participates. High school students of any grade are invited to participate in the Programming Contest.
