X3176: Conspiracy Theories: The Human Quest to Know the Unknown in Splash Spring 18 (Apr. 07, 2018)
From the Illuminati to Avril Lavigne's Dopplegänger, this course is a survey of some of the most influential, outlandish, inventive, and even persuasive conspiracy theories that have plagued humanity all throughout history. How and why were these theories created and what role do they play in our larger society?

M2357: Human Computer in Splash Fall 16 (Nov. 05, 2016)
Carry a number from the input to the output. That's the first level in this class that will turn you into a human computer! Starting with only 2 simple commands, and ending with just 11, you will put together step-by-step instructions that will make the human computer do everything that an electronic one can. This is an interactive, puzzle-solving class that will have you out of your seat and moving around, alternately coming up with new instructions for the human computer and being the computer itself. We will solve incremental challenges, and by the end you will not believe what can be done with a few simple instructions. No experience with computers or programming required! This class is inspired by award-winning indie game "Human Resource Machine."
