Roeper Sophomore, Steven Raphael has successfully competed in the Opening Round of the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad and will be taking the test at the Invitational on March 8th.
NACLO is a contest for U.S. and Canadian high school students in which contestants compete by solving compelling and creative puzzles in linguistics and computational linguistics. Requiring no previous knowledge of linguistics, languages, or computing, these puzzles can be solved by analytic reasoning alone, and serve as a fun introduction to a field to which many high school students have never been introduced. Winners of NACLO are eligible to compete in the International Linguistics Olympiad, one of twelve international high school science Olympiads.
