Colloquium - Eisenberg

Computational Crafts: A Compendium of Project Ideas
Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado

The purpose of this talk is to explore the huge, and largely uncharted, design space in which computational media and craft materials blend together. To this end, the talk will present a variety of potential projects -- some easily achievable, some more ambitious. The focus throughout is on the sorts of crafts associated with mathematics and science education, and practiced by hobbyists and students. Examples will be drawn from domains such as informal science, mathematical toys and construction kits, science museums and exhibits, and so forth.

Hosted by Elizabeth Bradley.
Refreshments will be served immediately following the talk in ECOT 831.
