Title

Solving Problems with Computer Science

Abstract

My presentation is an overview of computer science, its role at Whitman and its future in our lives and in industry. From my experiences in the classroom to my internship at a tech startup in Seattle, I trace the journey of a liberal arts student into the tech world and share the exciting possibilities and opportunities that await. Computer Science provides an avenue for immediate change on a vast scale. Companies such as Facebook, Uber, AirBnB and other platforms are reshaping the landscape of our society. With modern tools to solve modern problems, students have all they need to engage in the world and make a difference. I share some of the products I've been working on, including a pet adoption service designed as part of a class, project management software created for enterprising individuals and a campus safety application soon to be released at Whitman.
