M3333: Functions and Dimensions in Splash! Fall 2013 (Nov. 02 - 03, 2013)
We will build colorful visualizations of shapes and functions in different dimensions. You'll get to take home your very own model of a hypercube!

M3334: Introduction to Computer Programming in Splash! Fall 2013 (Nov. 02 - 03, 2013)
This hands-on class is intended for people who want to start writing code (and learn how to use it) but have not been exposed to it before. I will start from the very beginning, and by the end of the class you will have seen enough to know how to start learning more on your own. I will also give you some direction as to what might be fun projects to take on. If you want to get yourself set up on a laptop, bring the laptop in.

M559: 4-D Hypercubes in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
Come build models of various interesting mathematical objects out of pipe cleaners! I will teach you a bit about dimensions then we will discuss applications in groups while you build.

E573: Building Speakers with basic supplies in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
Design your own speakers out of household objects (plus magnet wire) and analyze how their sound output changes when you make specific changes to the design. I will teach you the basics and give you some design ideas. You should come ready to ask questions and analyze your design. You might want to look at or before class. I will bring in a wide variety of materials, but if you want to try something, feel free to bring it along.

S425: Brief Introduction to Some Interesting Physics in Splash! Spring 2009 (Apr. 04 - 05, 2009)
This will be a class that will involve hanging out and talking about a few interesting things in many fields of physics. My goal is to introduce you to a lot so that you learn how much you might find if you go out and read and study further. The first hour will be a lecture, and the second hour will be time for you to talk to the people around you about the physics that was just introduced. There will be questions to think about and toys to play with (an old electronics to take apart and some lenses, polarizers, and other physics toys). :) Prerequisites: I will not assume that you have any specific knowledge, but the discussion will be more interesting if you have had an introductory physics course already or know your way around electronics.
