Computer Science consists of a lot of interesting challenges which are easy to understand but hard to solve. Unfortunately only few reach the audience at high schools. Our motivation is to attract more students to the university studies in Computer Science by catching their interest with scientific challenges. We do not only want to astonish with nice presentations, but also to communicate the challenges behind our research in an understandable manner. Therefore we condensed the problem of facial portrait manipulation omitting all the technical details. We ended up with a statistical smiley model which is very intuitive to demonstrate the challenges when manipulating e.g. the happiness of a smiley.
