Students taking a computer graphics class presented their final projects to members of the Mount community. Two students worked together to create an animation that included three key parts: the who, the what, and the where. The judges had a little friendly competition to see which person could guess correctly the who, the what, and the where of each animation. Dr. Brian Heinold, an assistant professor of Mathematics and Computer Science, won the grand prize!

Each team did very well and we wish each of them the best of luck with these projects!




One of our very own, Professor Scott Weiss, attempted a multi-layered crossword puzzle competition for the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. He won the grand prize of $2,500 by completing this crossword puzzle in just 55 minutes! This foundation is very near and dear to his heart because his grandmother suffered from dementia. It wasn't about the prize money for him; it was about being able to support this worthy cause. He started enjoying crossword puzzles in elementary school through the influence of his grandparents and still does about 12 crossword puzzles a week.

Professor Weiss plans to enter this same contest again, but will have to compete in the pro division because of his winnings.

Senior Computer Science students presented their research projects to the Mount Community today in Laughlin Auditorium. Their research project consisted of creating a mobile app used for smartphones. They demonstrated how the app was made and how to use the app itself during their presentations.
