ICE will be holding an AP bowl Saturday April 18th from 3pm - 5pm at Georgia Tech (Klaus 2443, 2447, and 2456). The teacher's focus group will be held in Klaus 2443. The AP bowl is when students come to Georgia Tech and take a sample multiple choice exam (40 questions) to help prepare for the CS AP exam. In previous years we used the Personal Response System (it looks like a remote control) but this year we may do a paper exam or on-line exam.

We will have giveaways for at least the top 3 in each exam. We will probably give out more items for the A exam since we have more students taking that exam. Last year we gave out Best Buy gift cards, but this year we have been told that we can't do that. So, we are thinking about things like I-Pod Touch, Rock Band, etc.

We got the most votes for April 18th at 3pm.

Last year we had 37 students from 9 schools take the A exam and 9 students from 4 schools take the AB. We gave out gift cards to Best Buy for the top 3 scores on each exam.

We also offered a tour of campus. I will try to have a talk about admissions for parents to attend during the exam.
