    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The projects we completed were both dynamic and helped me master the material. Bruce is a fantastic instructor that makes the journey of completing the course that much more worthwhile.

    Course highlights:

    I took the CS151 Scientific Applications course. We did a lot of data-based projects, such as climate trends analysis and population projections. We also did some fascinating physics simulations at the end of the course, leading up to building our own video game. Entering into the course I did not anticipate that I would be able to accurately determine the differing survival rates of Galapagos penguins depending on whether or not they are experiencing an El Niño year. I definitely felt accomplished when I found I could do this in my first computer science class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want a great intro to Computer Science, this is a great course.Just make sure that you have the time available to dedicate to the coursework. CS is very time consuming but also very gratifying. The connections I made with my classmates and professors while taking this course made the experience that much more gratifying as well. If it sounds like something you're interested in, go for it!
