Barefoot-CT-Poster-for-website.jpg

Computational Thinking has been said to be the fourth R- in tandem with the current 3R (Reading- wRiting- and aRithmetic). And many have recognized the importance of CT as a life skill for all in the 21st century and beyond. In this workshop- we will give a gentle introduction to CT via three fun and thought-provoking hands-on activities that expose participants to the FUN and the thinking processes behind CT.

These activities include some of the following:

(a) Bill Gates and Pancake Flipping (introduction to algorithms).

(b) Reading your mind with matheMAGIC.

(c) Fun with Sorting Networks.

(d) Looking at our world Recursively.

(e) Your Own AI for Tic-Tac-Toe.

The workshop will close with reflections on how these activities link to real-life problem solving in computer science and everyday things in our lives. Come with an open mind and a questioning attitude.
