Summer Study 1997 - Wednesday, August 13

We started today with a talk on which search engine is the best one. Dan Comden talked about how some search engines have a lack of information while others have way too much. While that was going on, the Phase II Scholars were in their workshops. One class the Game of Life is a class about how you program little dots to do different stuff. While the Phase II Scholars were doing that and more the Phase I Scholars were in a class about how to download programs. They downloaded programs using ftp ( File Transfer Protocol), and Netscape.

After lunch both groups learned about how to run a human-powered submarine. Then they had open computer lab for the rest of the afternoon. After dinner people got to paint pictures in a Sumi painting class. Then we did our evening activities.
