Popular Computer Technology Paper (15 Project Points)  (PDF version, with sample template)
PRESENTATIONS Week of May 9th. Be Ready!! [Due date soon]

Assignment:
Browse through the stack of Popular Science, Popular Mechanics and Wired Magazines in our classroom and find an article that is of interest to you that involves computer science in some way.   Make sure that the article is at least a couple pages or has additional online information to complete your paper.  You can also research if there are any updates online regarding the subject.  Then write a short paper that summarizes the article showing how it uses computer science and what you found most interesting.

Write a paper (Word document) on the article that includes:

  • A good summary of the article
  • Highlight what you found to be interesting in the article
  • Clearly show how computer science is being applied
  • Find any programming concepts from our class that are being used

 Your Paper is required to:

  • Be a Word document, saved in our class folder
  • At least 1.5 pages (1-inch margins, double spaced, 12 point font), no more than 3 pages, please.
  • Use the Technical paper format: 5 paragraphs, each paragraph with 5 sentences.
  • Have your name and class period at the top of the paper.
  • Include the name and date of the Magazine, title of the article and its author.  Also include any online related articles you find.
  • And NO two students in the same class can use the same article – there are plenty of interesting articles in those magazines.

PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE THE MAGAZINES FROM OUR CLASS ROOM, THEY ARE BEING USED BY STUDENTS IN OTHER PERIODS.  Thank you.
