Congratulations and a big thank you to the Association for Women in Computing and the Department of Computer Science for a very successful 17th annual Women in Computing Day on April 24. Held this year at the Moss Art Center, the event brought in 7th grade girls from around the region to explore various ideas in computation and computational thinking — from circuits made of playdoh to being data in the Moss Art Center Cube.
Have a look at Steve’s article in interactions on his recommended reading. From a book on design theory to one documenting an art installation in Alaska, these books all have a great deal to say about how we see and and understand technology.
