Why Computer Science?

The thing I love most about computer science is that it gives you the tools to make absolutely amazing creations. I have always loved to make stuff. Whether it was arts and crafts or stupid little machines, I never got tired of throwing stuff together to make all new stuff. As a kid, computer science drew me in because it gave me a whole new way to make stuff, but now I was able to make all that stuff for free! No longer did I have to continually bug my parents to buy wire and glue and things, now I could make entire projects in just a few hours with only my fingers and my computer (or calculator, if it came to it). That's why I want to be a UTA, to help others discover how much freedom programming can give them when it comes to making stuff, no matter how weird, funny, or useless that stuff may be!
