Everyone knows that programming has applications in math and science, but what many don’t know are the versatile uses of programming in arts and crafts. LED light shows, AI-generated art, and wearable electronics are just a few of the ways coding can be creatively applied. Come along for an overview of these topics as well as recommendations for free resources to get started with different types of programming.

She earned a master’s degree in computer science from New Mexico State University and a bachelor’s degree in computer science, mathematics, and German studies from the University of Arizona.
