Are you curious about what it takes to hack into common electronic devices... and protect them from future attacks? UW CSE's security group will be displaying research they have done on car hacking.
Want to impress your friends? Learn some cool card tricks (and a little discrete math)!
Grace Hopper popularized the term "debugging" when a moth was found stuck in a computing machine she used, causing calculation errors. Do you know what it takes to make sure a program is bug free? Representatives from UW's Information school will help you debug code in a game-like environment.
Have you always wondered what kind of thinking computer scientists engage in? Come solve Amazon.com's computational thinking puzzles to find out!
