My name is James Skripchuk, but you can just call me Jimmy! I’m working on a Computer Science degree in The University of Delaware’s Honors College with a concentration in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
I am very grateful to have received the 2018 Steven Geracimos Memorial Award by the University of Delaware for my work in Computer Science research and computational thinking under Lori Pollock. I was one of four undergraduates selected to become a “Computational Thinking Fellow” under an NSF funded grant in order to infuse computational thinking principles into general education courses at UD. Specifically, I spent multiple semesters working with the UD music department in designing, implementing, and refactoring the new course MUSC106: Computational Thinking in Music.
I have a passion for science and science education. I’m a total music theory nerd with a penchant for jazz and experimental electronic music.
I’m an alumni of MOE 365, a robotics team consisting of high-schoolers from the tri-state area. I also mentor for one of Newark Charter School’s robotics teams and help middle school children develop science and engineering skills.
