August 6-8 marked the third offering of CS4HS at the University of Washington, a computer science workshop for high school teachers of math and science.
CS4HS is offered jointly by the University of Washington, Carnegie Mellon University, UCLA, the University of Texas at Austin, and Western Oregon University, and sponsored by Google. This year, at the UW offering, more than 30 teachers spent 3 days exploring topics such as synthetic biology, cryptography, computational thinking (using CS Unplugged), debunking stereotypes, careers in computing, visual programming using Squeak, robotics, recursion, and computing for individuals with disabilities.
