CS Professor Mike Eisenberg wins Best Paper Award at CELDA

Kids learn how to display an image on a spherical object

The paper "Math on a Sphere: Making Use of Public Displays in Education" by Mike Eisenberg, Antranig Basman, and Sherry Hsi, won a Best Paper award at the Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) October 2013 conference in Fort Worth, Texas. The paper describes the architecture and programming of the team's "Math on a Sphere" project, allowing students to create graphical programs for a spherical surface and to display those programs on the giant "Science on a Sphere" display system created by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
