Information Science & Engineering Night at Elementary School

April 2019

In March, students enrolled in "EE367A: Information Theory" collaborated with an elementary school in Palo Alto, bringing the younger students interactive games, activities and performance centered around aspects of information theory. More than 50 different activities were were available to the grade schoolers. Students of all ages enjoyed the activities that covered topics such as communication in the animal kingdom; the basics of how DNA carries genetic information; the fundamentals of coding; and even picture books – all geared toward a K-5 audience.

The event was the first of its kind for Professor Tsachy Weissman and his students (pictured). He was inspired by his daughter who sparked the idea by asking to learn more about what he does at his job. The well-attended event welcomed all family members, who kept EE367A students busy answering questions and sharing their own recently acquired knowledge. The collaboration between the two groups will continue into another Science Night to occur later in the next school year.

 

Thanks to all the terrific students of EE367A!
