• Honors SciVis
     
    Congratulations on choosing to enroll in the SciVis honors curriculum!  On this page you will find all documentation relating to the additional assignments and projects to successfully complete the class for honors credit.
     
    IN ORDER TO BE ENROLLED IN HONORS, YOU MUST SUBMIT THE PARENT NOTIFICATION FORM WITH THE REQUIRED ASSIGNMENT (PAPER).  WITH OUT THESE TWO THINGS TURNED IN BY THE DEADLINE YOU WILL NOT BE ENROLLED!
     
     
    1) Your first assignment (due the 8th day of class... if this paper is not submitted with your permission slip, you will not be enrolled) will be to study the Grand Challenges web page, decide on a topic and start thinking of a solution to the problem.  Remember, your solution must be viable.  This means that there is a possibility that it could work give the correct resources and produced without too much capital.  Once you have come up with a solution, fill out the solutions worksheet and explain your design in detail.  Please include SIMPLE pictures you create using Photoshop.
     
    2) You will use the Design Brief document to plan out your project.  You will be responsible for creating a document that describes each of the steps and how you used them to plan your project and how your solution can be tested. ( Example:  you can use a flow chart to show how your solution would be tested.  If something doesn't work then what happens or if a particular thing does happen, what next?)
     
    3) Start modeling your solution.  Remember, in the end, you will need to create the model and an environment that the solution would be in in normal working conditions.  More detail is better than less detail.  We can reduce the polys later if needed.
