Summer Engineering and Computer Science Institute

Computing and Mathematical Sciences Lecturers Michael Vanier and Donnie Pinkston partnered with the Caltech Center for Diversity to work with 23 diverse and gifted high school sophomores and juniors who came to Caltech as part of the Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) Summer Engineering Institute.  The student's summer projects included a Sudoku solver, a "15-puzzle" sliding-tile puzzle game, and a Pong game. The games were a great hit at the final presentations involving Caltech faculty and staff, parents, and representatives from Apple Inc. [Caltech Feature]
