Each year, Lockheed Martin hosts Code Quest, an annual computer programming competition where teams of two to three high school students work together to solve problems by using JAVA, Python, VB.net, C#, and/or C++ programming to complete the “quest”. The problem set consists of 20 to 30 challenging problems created by Lockheed Martin engineers and computer programmers.
We are encouraging schools around Lockheed Martin locations that hosted the competition in 2019 to compete again in 2021. Code Quest 2019 took place at 25 locations around the world with more than 1,800 students.
This spring, Lockheed Martin is launching Code Quest® Academy, a free computer coding and career exposure program for high school students. This helps students of all skill levels grow their coding knowledge through interactive problems and inspires students to pursue technology careers. Students will also be prepared for successful participation in the Code Quest 2021 competition on April 24th. Competition participants are eligible to apply for summer internships with Lockheed Martin.
Students 13+ can connect with Lockheed Martin via Tallo, a free online platform and app where you can showcase your accomplishments, skills, and career interests. Colleges and companies, like Lockheed Martin, use Tallo to connect with students about future internship and scholarship opportunities.
