  • 6.S095 Programming for the Puzzled (MIT)
    by Devadas, Srini on maio 10, 2018 at 06:32

    This class builds a bridge between the recreational world of algorithmic puzzles (puzzles that can be solved by algorithms) and the pragmatic world of computer programming, teaching students to program while solving puzzles. Python syntax and semantics required to understand the code are explained as needed for each puzzle. […]

  • WGS.S10 History of Women in Science and Engineering (MIT)
    by Weinstock, Maia on maio 9, 2018 at 09:17

    This course provides a basic overview of the history of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Students will learn about specific contributions of women across a variety of disciplines and will gain a broad perspective on how these contributions played a larger role in the advancement of human knowledge and technological achievement. The class will also grapple with how both historic and modern biases within the STEM disciplines, as well as in representations of women and girls in media and popular culture, can affect outcomes in these areas. […]

  • RES.ENV-001 Climate Action Hands-On: Harnessing Science with Communities to Cut Carbon (MIT)
    by Damm-Luhr, David on abril 30, 2018 at 07:24

    This course explores how citizen science can support community actions to combat climate change. Participants will learn about framing problems, design ways to gather data, gather some of their own field data, and consider how the results can enable action. Leaks in the natural gas system—a major source of methane emissions, and a powerful contributor to climate change—will be a particular focus. The course was organized by ClimateX and Fossil Free MIT, with support from the National Science Foundation for the methane monitoring equipment. It was offered during the Independent Activities Period (IAP), which is a special 4-week January term at MIT. […]
