Computer scientists have long been trained to solve problems by
combining a few simple logical operations in a scheme known as an
algorithm. This computational approach to problem solving, or
computational thinking, will become increasingly valued in the
workforce, as workers in all fields are expected to analyze
increasingly large amounts of information, and as computing becomes
cheaper and even more ubiquitous. This session will introduce you
to computational thinking, and provide an example of how students
in a St. John’s biology class are learning to use computational
tools by participating in a crowd-sourced genomics research
Monday, November 4
