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 period where they
have the option of playing a pick up game of ultimate Frisbee,
football, soccer, or simply socialize with their peers.
- In the afternoon, the students split into their elective classes:
robotics, programming, or mathematical theory.
- In the Robotics section,
students gain hands-on experience in designing, programming, and building
- In the Programming section, students learn to program in multiple
languages by creating their own computer games.
- The Mathematical Theory section is conducted by Dr. Rudich and
provides students with a deeper understanding of mathematical theory and aspects of computer science.
A minimum number of participants is required for this section.
- Before the elective, there is a guest lecture by computer science
faculty and graduate students presenting their research at Carnegie Mellon.
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.
