New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences will host cSplash, a day-long festival of classes in the mathematical and computer sciences, on Sat., March 25, 8:45 a.m.-4:45 p.m., at Courant’s Warren Weaver Hall (251 Mercer St, between 3rd and 4th Sts., one block west of Broadway). The event is part of the Institute’s Courant Initiative for the Mathematical Sciences in Education (CIMSE), a collaboration between NYU and area college and university faculty, and New York City parents, teachers, and administrators.
Taught by graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and others associated with the world-renowned Courant Institute, the classes will cover a variety of topics in pure math, applied math, computer science, and related fields. Many will be presented in unusual or unique ways, designed to provoke the students’ interest, imagination, and intellect. The classes will be at a range of levels, suitable for all students in grades 9 to 12 who have an interest in mathematical and computer sciences and are ready to challenge themselves and gain exposure to new ideas.
The program is free and is open to all students in grades 9-12 (or with equivalent mathematical background) with an interest in mathematical and computer sciences. Spaces are limited and are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. For a complete schedule of sessions, go to http://cims.nyu.edu/~csplash/csplashday.php. The public may call 212.998.3207 or email email@example.com for more information. Reporters interested in attending the event or in finding out more about it should contact James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, a center for research and advanced training in computer science and mathematics, has long been a leader in mathematical analysis, applied mathematics, and scientific computation, with special emphasis on partial differential equations and their applications. In computer science, the Institute excels in theory, programming languages, computer graphics, and machine learning. Computer science and mathematics are viewed as living parts of the stream of science, not as isolated specialties.
