    Overview

    July 10 - 29, 2022

    Computer Science is a rich academic field that studies the computational structures and processes that appear throughout the natural and human worlds. The SLAI Computer Science Program approaches computer science with a liberal arts perspective, looking more broadly than programming alone.

    Computer Science is a rich academic field that studies the computational structures and processes that appear throughout the natural and human worlds. The SLAI Computer Science Program approaches computer science with a liberal arts perspective, looking more broadly than programming alone.

    Students who attend the program will learn about finding computational solutions to two broad areas of interest: problems where the computer needs to perceive something about the world in which it exists, or alternatively problems where the computer needs to respond appropriately given a complex scenario. Participants will do this by attending classes, participating in hands-on lab activities, and working in small teams on projects directed by college faculty and mentored by undergraduate teaching assistants.

    The program culminates with a research symposium where students share the results of their work with each other and the broader community.
