More and more, computing is moving off desks and into pockets and devices spread across our world. A great group of students got a chance to learn about physical computing from Brett Wortzman, a fantastic local high school teacher.
Microsoft donated 12 .NET Gadgeteer Kits for use by the students – carried across the Atlantic with two days to spare by Scarlet Schwiderski-Grosche from Microsoft Research in Cambridge UK, who was visiting Seattle for the Microsoft Research Faculty Summit.
UW CSE is hosting eight summer day camps this year: two week-long day camps for high school girls, two week-long day camps for middle school girls, three co-ed day camps focused on building apps for Android phones (3-day and 5-day camps for middle school students, and a 3-day camp for high school students), plus this 4-day co-ed day camp for high school students focused on physical computing. In addition, we are hosting CS4HS, a 3-day workshop for middle school and high school math and science teachers.
