Nell Dale, author of Computer Science Illuminated, is in the process of developing a series of progressive laboratory exercises that will extend student understanding of key chapter concepts. The labs correspond with material presented in the textbook, and challenge students to take a closer look at a collection of carefully selected topics. Through active engagement in the fundamentals of computer science, students will become more fully prepared to continue their study in this field.
