IBM Mainframe Contest

So we have all heard of Microsoft's Imagine Cup, it now looks like IBM want in on the student tech contests with their Mainframe Contest.

This is split into 3 rounds the first of which helps to get the students thinking about mainframes and a general introduction, with the first 200 students to finish the stage winnig IBM mainframe t-shirts.

Stage 2 is a much more practical stage withe students using the skills they learned in stage 1 to do various programing tasks. Again the first 25 students to complete the stage get Sony PSPs

The final stage the most challenging stage with students working on a project over a number of weeks, with the best 3 entries winning think pads.

Also up for grabs is a trip to IBM Hursley where the lucky student will be able to see what life at IBM is really like.
