Virtual robots competed against each other in a battle arena on a screen in the final contest of the fourth CityU-CS Robocode Contest held on 23 November in the
Computer Science Laboratory at City University of Hong Kong (CityU).
 
This year 592 students from over 100 secondary and international schools participated in the event and 32 teams made it to the final contest. The winning team was from Po Leung Kuk Lo Kit Sing (1983) College.
 
The aim of the competition, organised by the Department of Computer Science, is to help students learn how to compile computer codes and boost their interest in computer science through games.
