Warp-The Computer Club:-Warp, We are Radical Professionals is the official Computer Club of our school. This club was started in the year 1995, by a group of 5 students who were eager to compete against other schools and excel in the (then) fledgling field of computer sciences. The students enjoyed spectacular successes competing against hundreds of schools all over Delhi. In 1998, Warp held a computer symposium inviting students from all over Delhi and NCR to participate in events ranging from Group Discussions and Quizzes based on technology, to hard core programming and web development. What started out as a minor feature during the school's Talent Fiesta, has now expanded to one of the most eagerly anticipated and most innovative computer symposiums of those hosted by schools over Delhi.
Every year, Warp recruits more members into its fraternity, through a rigorous testing process, that we like to call The Warp Talent Hunt. The test comprises first of a general quiz on technology, after which the student specifies which vertical he/she would like to represent the school in. The student then gives a practical test, to prove his technical skills in that vertical. All the students that pass the first two tests are subjected to an interview. While cumbersome, these tests enable us to limit our numbers to an elite few people who are truly passionate about technology, led by a core team of teachers and students.
Multiple times a year, the club organizes workshops to elevate the general technical awareness of students of the school, where experienced industry experts and senior Warp members, help students pick up skills that they find interesting. Every year Warp holds an Inter School Computer Symposium with a variety of events, providing tough challenges to all the participants.
Warp is committed to bringing out computing excellence amongst both its own members and its peers. It intends to continue to do so.
