Google igniteCS Student Leader

Corin led a team of about 20 Vassar students in teaching local high school students how to code in association with Google. With this team, he developed the course content for a ten session, once per week overview of Python. The first five classes teach the basics of programming, while the next five each focus on a specific topic like Data Science or Blockchains. After learning the basics, students utilize and refine their skills by investigating one of these five topics further on their own. See Teaching Kids to Code for details of the Spring 2017 program!

Teaching Assisstant

Building on the course content he developed for Google igniteCS, with the help of one other student and a Vassar computer science professor, Corin developed and helped teach a 6-week introductory course to computer science in Python, based on the Harvey Mudd CS for All course. This Harvey Mudd class became a 6-week, 6-hour a day course that covers computer science in as much detail as possible for 16 students with limited to no background in CS. This was a trial run of the course which may soon become a full for-credit course in the introductory sequence of the Vassar CS department. You can see the course content at https://cscamp.cs.vassar.edu/

Student Research Fellow

Through Vassar's URSI program, Corin worked with a professor at Vassar College in collaboration with the Small Data Lab at Cornell Tech developing a web app to act as the front end for Ancile, a privacy aware data management platform. This project acts as a layer between data producers like Facebook & Google and data consumers like the company you work for or your school, and gives users complete control over who is allowed to use their data for what. Corin's job was to make it user friendly!
