Algorithms and Complexity Group at the Science Picnic

The Vienna March for Science on April 22, 2017, started with a Science Picnic. The Algorithms and Complexity Group performed a science demonstration with a human sorting network.

This demonstration introduced the participants to ideas of computational thinking. Volunteers from the public — adults and children — were invited  to sort numbers (and other items) by progressing through the sorting network and in doing so, getting an understanding of fundamental principles used in computers.
