Past Computer Science Showcase Events

Everyone was invited to the Computer Science Showcase 2019 event! Our visitors saw many exciting projects created by undergraduate and graduate Computer Science and Computational Media Design students. The Showcase was structured like a science fair, where visitors and guests could freely visit all of the booths to see what our community can create!

Thank you to all the students and volunteers who participated in this event.  We hope to see you all next year!   If you have any questions please contact Tony Tang at

The Computer Science Showcase is an event where Computer Science undergraduate and graduate students, as well as CMD students and department research labs can show off the projects that they have worked on. It is structured like a science fair, where visitors and guests can freely visit all of the booths to see what our community can create!

Showcase Details

Date:  Tuesday, April 10, 2018
Time:  1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Place:  MacEwan Ballroom, 3rd Floor, MacEwan Student Centre

Some of the projects included:

  • Robot Improv Puppet Theatre:  A robot arm that uses crowd-sourced audience input to perform an improv scene with a human performer.
  • Dessert Desperado:  A racing game where you try to escape to the Mexican border while evading police cars and obstacles.
  • Haptic Rendering of Fluids:  Rendering haptic feedback for real-time fluid simulations with Nvidia FleX.
  • DUO Collegare:  DUO Collegare provides a platform to connect organizations and volunteers to inspire action, rather than just dialogue. We bring together people from diverse backgrounds to work towards a common goal: social good.
  • Haptic Team Racing:  A two-player, cooperative race-against-the-clock game controlled with two Novint Falcon haptic devices. Work together to avoid obstacles and reach the finish line before time is up!

Undergraduate and graduate students regularly do projects through the year (many times not even in class!) that are amazing and worth showing off.
