The camp program was originally designed by Ekaterina Spriggs
(Computer Vision Group) in collaboration with
Dr. Sara Chavarria (College of Education)
and Dr. Kobus Barnard (Computer Vision Group) in 2008.
The camp relied heavily on collaborations with a number of groups at the
University of Arizona. The camp was lead by
the Computer Vision PHD student, Yekaterina Kharitonova,
and executed by an excellent team of mentors from the Computer Science department and the
Computer Vision Group - Emily Hartley, Bonnie Kermgard, Dan DeBlasio, Jeff Juozapaitis, and
During the camp,
the Postdoctoral Research Associate
Matina Donaldson-Matasci discussed plant structure and adaptation to their environment.
A Program Researcher for the School of Information: Science, Technology, and Arts (SISTA),
Matt DePorter, gave the students a tour of the Media Arts Lab. He explained the principles
behind the 3-D printers and showed them in action.
A Computer Science PHD student, Ernesto Brau, discussed computational modeling with the campers.
Kyle Simek, another Computer Science PHD student, provided a hands-on probability tutorial.
The camp wouldn't have been possible without enormous contributions from the Computer Science
Administrative Services group,
Laboratory Staff and
the Academic Services group.
