Welcome to the summer bridge course running from June 23 - July 18!

Goal of the Bridge Course

The intention of this course is to introduce you to the field of computer science. Brown professors, students, and staff will present lectures and give project demonstrations. Danah and Andrea will teach you the basics of UNIX, the operating system used in the computer science department at Brown, and help you become completely familiar with the World Wide Web, learning HTML and JavaScript. You will be introduced to concepts in programming through projects in Logo, C and Java. Field trips include visits to the Computer Museum and Boston Museum of Science. And last but not least, throughout these four weeks, you will have lots of fun! <grin>
