Engaging High School Students in Computer Science via Challenging Applications

  • How do we encourage high school students to choose a computer science degree? In this paper we describe a general framework for building short-courses designed to engage student while presenting a sub-field of computer science. We also describe two of these short-courses centered around computer graphics and physical simulations. We take advantage of the ease with wich computer science allows even beginner students to apply and experiment with their knowledge thanks to interactive environments.
