HONG KONG

INTERNATIONAL COMPUTING OLYMPIAD

About HKICO

Hong Kong International Computational Olympiad is an annual computational Olympiad competition which consists of main programming languages nowadays such as Scratch, Blockly, Java, C++, Python.

Hong Kong International Computational Olympiad, HKICO is organized by Olympiad Champion Education Centre from Hong Kong, a registered educational center listed on Education Bureau of Hong Kong (EDB Reg No: 598 216) to provide Computational Olympiad classes in Hong Kong.

Mr. Hayden Lee, former GOLD winners from HKOI in Junior Secondary Group in the Year 2016/17, former winners from 35th National Olympiad in Informatics, China (NOI) in the Year 2018.

Computational thinking involves using a set of problem-solving skills and techniques that software engineers use to write programs and apps. Hong Kong International Computational Olympiad promotes problem-solving skills and informatics concepts including the ability to break down complex tasks into simpler components, algorithm design, pattern recognition, pattern generalization, and abstraction.

Message from Chairperson

Dear students, parents, teachers & partners all over the world.

Welcome to join Hong Kong International Computational Olympiad Final Round 2019 – 2020.

For the 1 st year, there are 5 teams and about 100 candidates to join the final round. This is a wonderful result for all of us to be interested in HKICO which should be held at the National University of Singapore, NUS for the first year.

There are 5 programming languages to be chosen in HKICO: Scratch, Blockly, C++, Java, and Python to suit each level of students. Computational thinking involves using a set of problem-solving skills and techniques that software engineers use to write programs and apps. Hong Kong International Computational Olympiad promotes problem-solving skills and Informatics concepts including the ability to break down complex tasks into simpler components, algorithm design, pattern recognition, pattern generalisation, and abstraction.

We all wish Hong Kong International Science Olympiad more successful! We look forward to meeting everybody in HKICO Final 2020 – 2021 at NUS, Singapore!

All the best,

Dr. Andy Lam, Ph.D. in Mathematics — Concentration in Actuarial Science and Risk Analytics Chairperson,

Hong Kong International Computational Olympiad.
