E188: What can a robot do? What can't a robot do (yet)? in Splash 2012 (Mar. 31, 2012)
This course is a brief introduction to robotics. The class will discuss the definition of a robot and different examples of robots. From there the class will offer more examples from different areas of robotics (lots of videos). The examples will motivate discussion on what robots might do in the future and what sorts of things students can do to make robots do the impossible.


X189: Rubik's Cube 101 in Splash 2012 (Mar. 31, 2012)
Ever wanted to learn how to solve a Rubik’s cube? Want an amazing skill to show off to your friends? This class will give you all the tools you need to be able to solve a Rubik’s cube! No prior cubing experience is necessary. We will start just by familiarizing ourselves with the cube and then work through the layer method to solve it. We will also touch on some more advanced techniques and discuss some of the extreme cubing activities that exist (ever heard of blindfolded Rubik’s cubing?). By the end of the course, you should have a good understanding of the cube as well as all the knowledge you’ll need to solve it!
