Each day runs from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
- The mornings consist of a lecture dealing with mathematical theory
and aspects of computer science with Dr. Rudich.
- At noon, students break for a 90-minute lunch. They can
play a pick up game of ultimate Frisbee,
football, soccer, and socialize with friends.
- In the afternoon, the students split into their tracks:
robotics, programming, or mathematical theory.
- In the Robotics track,
students gain hands-on experience in designing, programming, and building
- In the Programming track, students learn to program in multiple
languages by creating their own computer games.
- The Mathematical Theory track is conducted by Dr. Rudich and
provides students with a deeper understanding of mathematical theory and aspects of computer science.
A minimum of three participants is required for this section.
- Before the afternoon tracks, there is a guest lecture by computer science
faculty and graduate students at Carnegie Mellon presenting their research.
These lectures enable students to explore and better understand the
possibilities for computer science, robotics, mathematics and
- With a pinch of creativity, and in addition to motivating them to think
outside the box, Leap allows students to develop their own creative projects.
