Computer Information Systems Seniors Compete in Virtual Team Challenge

Supper Troopers
Three teams from the Greenville CIS program recently competed in a virtual team challenge sponsored by Deloitte.  The challenge is a real-time, multi-user business simulation that is played over the course of several weeks by high school students throughout North America.  The students face business tasks and challenges that simulate the real-world experiences of professional services employees like the people with careers at Deloitte.  The challenge revolves around an oil spill in a virtual world.  The students must interact with the avatars in the virtual world to aid in the relief efforts of a city to recover from the disaster.  Based on the interactions with the avatars and research in the virtual library and newspapers, they must make sound business decisions on hiring companies.  Each student is assigned one of four rolls on the team.  
The rolls are:
Fast Tracker: Responsible for Support Services including decisions about hiring emergency services and logistics vendors to make sure the cleanup runs smoothly.

Smooth Operator: Responsible for Media and Volunteer Management including decisions about a hiring public relations firm and a spokesperson for the cleanup so that support-donations from the public adequately fund the cleanup.

Grime Stopper: Responsible for the physical aspects of the environmental cleanup including hiring oil spill containment, recovery and disposal vendors. If the cleanup is environmentally effective, New City will be saved and the team will receive the most support-donations from the public.

Green Machine: Responsible for crisis administration including hiring vendors to write the disaster assessment document and handle legal and compliance issues.

There were over 600 teams in the national competition.

Team Super Troopers (Allen Burden, Danielle Liebherr, Max Muir, and Matthew Oiler) raised $181,500.00 virtual dollars for the relief effort, placing 16th in North America.  This is the highest place Greenville has received in the yearly contest which started in 2008.

Team FiddlerMiddler (Maleigha Day, Sierra Forte, Dalton Jones, and Joseph Miller) raised $168,080.00 virtual dollars for the relief effort, placing 40th in North America.

Team ARIHCC (Darin Gusek, James Hardy, and Blake Peters) raised $166,973.00 virtual dollars for the relief effort, placing 44th in North America.

The CIS program at Greenville High School is taught by Nathan Sharp and Robert Warner.  For more information about the CIS program at Greenville High School, contact Jon McGreevey, CT Director at (937) 548-4188 extension 847.
