An Engineering Workshop is mandatory en the third term of the engineering curricula of a sister institution. In the workshop each major choice is allowed to have a four week introductory mini course. We were asked to develop such a course for Computer Science majors. In order to give our students an early taste of programming and helping the other students with their academic skills, we chose to develop algorithmic thinking contextualized as Image Processing. In the paper we describe the choices we made and how we used Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) to enhance the students experience. We explain how we structured the full course and the grading around the CATs. The course was graded using a performance evaluation over a team project: the enhancement or restoration of an image chosen by the team, with a program also chosen by the team, accompanied with a documented solution of the problem.
