EPQ ideas related to Computer ScienceWatch
I originally thought to do it about the evolution of technology (handheld devices and such) however I was told this was too broad of an idea.
I then thought to do it about internet security and how safe we really are using the internet. However, I am finding it very hard to locate credible research or previously related studies that I could include in this idea.
Before I go and change my idea again, I just wanted to see if there was any ideas from the community on what I could do it about that could help me to achieve a top grade.
As a side question, how valuable are EPQ's for a degree in Computer Science? I hope to go to a top university so am pretty much taking on whatever I can however I need to be sure whether this is worth it or not (as it is starting to interfere with my A-Level study).
Thanks in advance.
Well I haven't started my EPQ yet but I keep meaning too and I'm planning on doing it on Alan Turing and his work (including Colossus and the Turing test idea etc.). I was also going to include some bits about Von Neumann and his advances on Turings computer but I'm not sure... But in general I think the computer history is really interesting
Wow! Just partially read the wikipedia page on it (the mathmatics part) and it's awesome, thanks!! Von Neumann was so awesome in general . I love it, his wikipedia page basically says that he theorised/invented a bit of every subject I'm doing!!! (Physics, maths, further maths and computer science)
My subjects are Maths, Further Maths (AS only, school don't offer A2), Physics and Economics (they don't offer computing so opted for this).
I keep thinking just maybe an epq could provide me with that boost but in most cases, I always see EPQs being helpful for English degrees and such.
I have the lesson tomorrow, considering now whether to show up or not aha
