Our Computer Science 1 (CS 120) course takes a "Multimedia-First" approach. Students from this semester's course will be displaying their work on combining images this Friday. The work being displayed has been selected by the students in their course section as one of the best in their section. Eighteen students' work will be on display.
The students will be displaying both the images they produced and the code they wrote (using the Python programming language). Although the images could have been created using an image-editing program, these students have written the code themselves to create these collages programmatically by manipulating individual pixels.
This is the eighth semester the Department of Computer Science has sponsored this event, which has been well received by previous attendees. The students enjoy participating since the project gives them an opportunity to be creative, and show the public and their peers what they can do with only a few weeks of programming experience. This semester's participants range from freshman to senior students, and include Actuarial Science, Chemistry, Computer Information Systems, Computer Technology, French, Integrated Studies in VR game development, Meteorology, Spanish, Visual Communication, and Computer Science majors.
The show will be held on Friday, 03/31/2017, from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM in the BSU AJ Atrium, near the bookstore. Please stop by to see an example of what our students do in our introductory programming class.
