computer science is for nerds

January 26th, 2011 by biscuit

This semester, part of the work I’m doing for the school/National Science Foundation involves going to local high schools and giving a ‘yay computer science!’ speech.

Sample slide:

News flash: I sort of think it is for nerds. I’ve got this whole presentation that revolves around fancy-ing it up, making it seems cool… but it’s not. Being a rugby player is cool. Being a drummer is cool. Being an astronomer is cool. Being a computer scientist is not cool.

That is precisely why I’m going into it.

I always wanted to be Queen of the Nerds.

    Computer Science is so cool, when you realize that we’re the ones who get to program the brains for our future robot overlords.

    In a way, my kids will rule the world. How can you get cooler than that?
