HN 218 - Computational Thinking: Exploring Computing through Robotics

(3.00 cr.)

Restricted to Honors students. An introduction to the great ideas of computing through hands-on experiments with robotics. The course explores the nature and limits of computers; engages with the philosophical and social implications of intelligent machines; and asks what the science of computing can tell us about creativity, reasoning, and the human mind. Students gain experience developing logical thinking using a programming language to control small robots; conducting field studies to obtain data; storing and accessing data from a database using queries; and performing data analysis with spreadsheet formulas. Fulfills the math/science core requirement for Honors nonscience majors. Same course as CS 218 .
