    Challenges are designed to spark creativity as they present very real issues in an imaginative way. These challenges also provide the opportunity for a fun, intense, short- term project, rather than an ongoing time commitment.

    The Challenges are geared for middle school - post colle- giate individuals who can work independently or in small groups toward solving the challenges. Participants can come with established team mates, or can choose to con- nect and work with people they meet at the challenge. Teams also have the opportunity to share code and collabo- rate with other teams from around the world.

    Challenges are in four main areas at 3 levels of difficulty
