New Core Science Course CS 110 for Everyone

Processed Flowers

We've added a new course for non majors to our curriculum. It was approved by the Curriculum Committee for the Scientific Inquiry Non-lab Science category of the core

The course is CS 110 Programming Art.

It will be offered this Spring, 2016 MoWe 5:00-6:15 PM in HT 113. Taught by professor William Crum.

It is an introduction to computational thinking by developing computer programs to create images, animations, visualizations, and interactive art. Topics include computational thinking, problem solving, programming in the Processing language, impact of technology on society and contemporary issues.

It's about the art of programming and it also programs art at one of the activities. The course uses the language Processing, a flexible software sketchbook and a language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts. Processing make sit easy for non-programmers to get started with programming, through the instant gratification of visual feedback. Incidentally, Processing is also a language of choice for the hot new field of data visualization.
