Opportunities Igniting the Flame for Operations Research

How do you program a robot to navigate a zombie-infested campus? That was one of many problems that 88 high school students from grades 9 through 12 had to solve during the third-annual Operations Research Challenge (TORCH) on March 16, 2013. A team from Don Mills Collegiate Institute shared the $300 top prize and were invited to attend a week of DEEP Summer Academy.
