On November 19, 2013, students in the sophomore seminar class presented "cool topics" to CS student ambassadors, advisors, faculty, and each other. As part of the sophomore seminar, students are assigned to a group which will decide on a "cool topic" to present towards the later part of the semester. Many interesting topics were presented during the evening event. According to the instructor of the class, Dr. Cal Ribbens, "The goal of the Cool Topics Fair is to give students in the Sophomore Seminar an opportunity to explore an emerging topic in computer science, and to present that topic to their peers. Students also get experience working together on a group project, something that will be common as they proceed through their undergraduate curriculum."
During the events, students had a chance to present their topics to representatives from AgileX, Eastman, Google, and Solers as well as their fellow classmates and CS student ambassadors. The CS Department thanks Google for sponsoring the event.
