2013 University of California Santa Cruz Domino Award

Brittany Arthur

The first Domino Award at University of California Santa Cruz was recently awarded by Topplers to Brittany Arthur, a junior in the Game Design program in the Computer Science department at the Baskins School of Engineering.

Brittany’s essay on Alan Turing was a standout in the submissions we received. She received a $500 scholarship and will join winners Alex Tsankov from University of Colorado and Nithin Jilla from University of California Irvine on an all-expenses paid trip to experience innovations in technology first-hand.

Brittany told us that one of her greatest interests has been in designing, testing, and observing learning environments for 4th-7th graders in science and math. After college she looks forward to being involved in developing STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) educational games and learning tools.

Topplers would like to thank our sponsors for generously supporting the Domino Award:  Adeptive SoftwareApplied TrustClickBank, and Gold Systems. Our sponsors have been vital in expanding the Domino Award this year and we are grateful for their continued support. And a special thanks to Jim Whitehead Chair of the Computer Science department and Charlie McDowell Associate Dean of Engineering for Undergraduate Affairs for their work in bringing the Domino Award to their students.
