A729: Computer Programming - the art of breaking things down in Cascade! Winter 2011 (Jan. 25, 2011)
Computers have become one of the most important tools of our time, but the science behind computers often seems extremely challenging, even intimidating. This course will show you that the word "programming" doesn't have to be all that scary! We will begin with a very limited subset of Python (programming language) and use it to rediscover three fundamental concepts of computer science: recursion, abstraction, and algorithmic complexity. You will learn that under the veil of intimidating language, programming is nothing more than the idea of breaking problems into smaller ones and switching them around. No prerequisites!

H702: Three Exercises in Bicycle Maintenance in Splash! Fall 2010 (Oct. 02, 2010)
We'll demonstrate the basic ABC quick check (air, brakes, chain, quick-releases) as well as how to adjust the brakes, lube the chain, and fix a flat. This will be a hands-on course. Students should come in clothes they don't mind getting a bit dirty; students are strongly encouraged to wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.
