Transcript IMAGINATION PAYS OFF Students participate and win big at top gaming competition By Darlene Campos Four teams from the Computer Science Department made UH proud at the Microsoft's Imagine Cup 2011 US Competition. Big Impact Bear, AAMP, Righteous Noodle and STC competed for the University and three of the teams placed in the top three in their respective events, which allowed them to advance to the final round. Team Big Impact Bear won first place in the mobile game design category, with Team AAMP following close behind with a second place finish. Team Righteous Noodle won third place in the game design for Windows/Xbox category. This is not the first time UH teams competed in the competition and made it to the final rounds. In 2008, a UH team finished in the top 20 in the international Imagine Cup competition. And in 2009, a UH team ranked in the top 150. Two UH teams - Ifrit Salsa and LeveL13 - won 2nd and 3rd places, respectively, in the national competition and four UH teams ranked in the top 150 in the International competition in 2010. Created by United Nations Millennium Development Goals and Microsoft, the Imagine Cup is a premier student technology competition in software design, embedded development, game design, digital media, and Windows Phone 7 development. "This success showcases not only UH's gaming coursework, but also the excellent overall quality of our undergraduate program," professor Jaspal Subhlok said in a press release. "These victories reinforce the fact that computer science students at UH receive an excellent education and have the skills and training to outperform anybody." Natural Science and Mathematics IT Director Jose Baez Franceshi served as mentor for Big Impact Bear and said the students prepared for the competition from the first day of class. "I was very impressed with the consistent dedication and the enthusiasm that the students showed in preparation for the competition," Baez Franceshi said. "Year after year, our students display the same wholehearted passion for competing. It makes me proud of being their instructor and mentor." Mark Rojas of Team AAMP, said he participated in the competition because it was part of the curriculum for his Game Development course. As his team saw how their game was coming together, they started to have faith that they could participate and win the Imagine Cup. "The experience was fun yet frustrating at times," Rojas said. "I feel that this exposed many of the students who participated in the class to what it would be like if they worked in industry where teamwork is the key. The most memorable moment was when we received notification that we were one of the few teams selected for the finals." News [49]
