The new Game Programming Club meets once a week and discusses and develops games. Any student can join, and there is no cost. For more information on the club and specific meeting details, please visit the club site here.
This summer the department hosted a successful one-week robot workshop for the Rocky Mountain Middle School Math and Science Program. Twenty-six students attended, built wonderful webpages, and learned to program robots and other projects.
The Robots etc. Club is busily preparing robots for a feature appearance at the new CS building groundbreaking ceremony on September 21. More information about the Robots etc. Club can be found here.
