The Secret Life of Viruses What are viruses How do they replicate How they invade living cells and hijack their building blocks and the cure for viruses. In addition to producing the posters this year we have converted some of the previous posters into A4 flyers to distribute at public places such as libraries municipalities etc in order to provide inputfor the general publicPrevious posters produced for National Science Week are as follows1 Our Place in the Universe by Tony Fairall2 History of Life on Earth by Anusuya ChinsamyTuran3 The Rocks of Table Mountain by John Compton4 The Chemistry of Colour by Susan Bourne5 Fascinating Nano World by Margit Harting6 When I speak on my cellphone where does my voice go by Gary Marsden7 Statistics of Growth and Life Expectancy by Tim Dunne8 Climate Change by Mike Lucas9 Plants Can Tell Time by Laura Roden10 Number Old and New by John Webb11 Journey from the Centre of the Earth by David Reid (less)

This course is a continuation of the first-semester course titled Introduction to Computer Science I. It will introduce the student to a number of more advanced Computer Science topics, laying a strong foundation for future academic study in the discipline. The student will begin with a comparison between Java--the programming language utilized last semester--and C++, another popular, industry-standard programming language. The student will then discuss the fundamental building blocks of Object-Oriented Programming, reviewing what they have learned learned last semester and familiarizing themselves with some more advanced programming concepts. The remaining course units will be devoted to various advanced topics, including the Standard Template Library, Exceptions, Recursion, Searching and Sorting, and Template Classes. By the end of the class, the student will have a solid understanding of Java and C++ programming, as well as a familiarity with the major issues that programmers routinely address in a professional setting. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Demonstrate an understanding of the concepts of Java and C++ and how they are used in Object-Oriented Programming; Demonstrate an understanding of the history and development of Object-Oriented Programming; Explain the importance of the C++ Standard Template Library and how basic components are used; Demonstrate a basic understanding of the importance of run-time analysis in programming; Demonstrate an understanding of important sorting and search routines in programming; Demonstrate an understanding of the generic usage of templates in programming for C++ and Java; Compare and contrast the features of Java and C++.
