    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

MICS-bound!

Since freshman year, I have participated in the Midwest Instruction and Computing Symposium each spring. The first two years, I participated in the Robotics competition and this year, I will be presenting two research projects at the conference – which will be held here at CSS in April! I just got news today that my research projects were accepted and that I will be presenting!

The Midwest Instruction and Computing Symposium (MICS) is a regional conference dedicated to providing an educational experience to higher education participants across the five-state region of Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The conference focuses on integrating computer-based technology into teaching and learning processes of all disciplines, along with incorporating the study of this technology into the curriculum. Conference activities include technical paper sessions, programming and robotics contests, a keynote address, and a Career Fair for student participants.

My first project is a research/independent study I am doing under the guidance of Dr. Gibbons and the second is a program I am leading at Lincoln Park Middle School where we aim to introduce students to computer science principles and foundations!
