This is our last week of classes. Monday and Tuesday, my students will present their final projects. We didn’t have quite enough time to do another intense programming project, so I decided to let them do something a little different. They had to pick a concept they learned in Computer Science and demonstrate it in a multimedia project. Although I didn’t require any programming, some students have used programming anyway, because that was the medium they wanted to use. The projects I’ve seen so far have been creative and fun. And I think some of them will be useful for showing other students why Computer Science is a great thing to do. One of my favorites so far is a painting by a sophomore:
I love some of the subtle references like the echoes of a circuit board and the icons and the brain. I can’t wait to frame it and hang it somewhere prominent! I am always trying to get my students to think outside the box, and so far this project seems like it’s pushing them to do that. I’ll share more as they come in. Seeing them is the best thing that’s happened this week!
