Every freshman at our school has to take an interdisciplinary course that involves three different subjects. My course is the only one that includes any mathematics or programming. I have 30 students, and almost none of them, really, have any programming experience. There are just a handful with some experience in art. My hope is that perhaps a few of them might consider going on a bit in programming and/or art after having the course.
I made sure to encourage them to wait until the course is over before joining the community here, if they are interested in doing so, and then to be selective and upload their best work. I wanted to protect the gallery from a flood of basic designs. I think only a few, if any, might join at the conclusion of the course.
