Six Kalamazoo College math and computer science students traveled to Memphis, Tenn., March 3-5 (or, in K-speak, the end of 9th Week!) to attend the annual conference of the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education (ACM-SIGCSE). They attended plenary and workshop sessions, volunteered with various conference management activities, and interacted with conference organizers, presenters, and other students from around the world. They also helped develop a mobile app that will be used for student volunteers at the 2017 conference. (And they may have enjoyed a stroll along Beale St., famous for its BBQ, Blues, and beverages.)
From left to right in the photo taken by Elizabeth Fiator ’16 are Noah Getz ’17, Luis Diniz (visiting international student from Belo Horizonte, Brazil), Will Lewis ’16, Owen Galvin ’17, Melany Diaz ’16. Their conference and Beale St. guides were K Associate Professor of Computer Science Pam Cutter, Ph.D., and Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science Alyce Brady, Ph.D.
