WCS Explore CS Series is an informative video series about the research our professors have done, using computer science applications, to impact different fields of work. We hope this series will allow young teenagers, and possibly even you reading this, to learn more about the opportunities available through studying computer science! We are bringing professors from all fields of expertise to talk about how they have used computer science to complete their research and how it affects the field they work in, as well as communities around the world!
Through this series we hope aspiring, uncertain, and interested students alike will be able to gain better insight into how computer science can help you actualize your personal goals and interests. Computer science work is not just what it looks like in the media — it can be fun, interactive, and fulfilling. Not all computer scientists sit around a computer screen all day, and not all of us are code monkeys! We hope to show through this series that computer science is more than what it seems, and can be used in a vast number of fields in various ways!!
