Visualization Research Center, University of Stuttgart

Girls' Day Workshop „Art meets Computer Science. Code your own piece of art

For the Girls' Day 2023, the SFB-TRR 161 and the SFB 1313 "Interface-Driven Multi-Field Processes in Porous Media – Flow, Transport and Deformation" offer the following coding workshop at the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart (VISUS):

Art meets Computer Science. Code your own Piece of Art

You want to dive into the world of computer science and learn how to program yourself? We will give you the necessary jump-start. In our workshop you can program your own piece of art.  We'll teach you the basics of JavaScript and then you can start to create your own personal artwork. There are no design limits.

During the workshop there will be a coding quiz where you can test your knowledge and win a prize at the end!

Prior programming knowledge is not mandatory for our coding course. You will get all the important information via mail before and during the workshop. There are also very nice helpers available to look over your shoulder and support you during coding. Of course, you can also ask us all your questions about studying computer science and find out everything about living and working on campus.

 We are looking forward to code with you!

Participation in 'Tag der Wissenschaft' - 'Science Day'

The University of Stuttgart's Science Day takes place on May 13, 2023. Together with the SFB 1313 "Interface-Driven Multi-Field Processes in Porous Media – Flow, Transport and Deformation" and the Visualization Research Center (VISUS), the SFB-TRR 161 will give insights into the world of visualization research. Visitors are invited to discover how visualizations can help to extract the relevant information from data and how they make visible what would otherwise remain hidden.

A detailed program will be available soon.
