Each year, Lockheed Martin hosts Code Quest, an annual computer programming competition where teams of two to three high school students work together to solve problems by using JAVA, Python, C#, and/or C++ programming to complete the “quest”. The problem set consists of 20 to 30 challenging problems created by Lockheed Martin engineers and computer programmers.

Code Quest will be held on February 24, 2024. The event is in February instead of April to help support interviews for Code Quest internships. Code Quest will be in person at Lockheed Martin facilities, as well as multiple virtual events. 

For the APAC region, Code Quest will be held on March 23, 2024.

General registration opens November 27, 2023.
