TechFlash interviews 2008 UW CSE alumna Helene Martin, now teaching computer science at Seattle’s Garfield High School.
“Dozens of K-12 math and science teachers gathered this week at the University of Washington campus for a three-day summer workshop called Computer Science for High School, or ‘CS4HS,’ an annual program started by the UW, Carnegie Mellon University and UCLA several years ago to promote computer science education in high schools. Sponsored by Google, the workshops are now held around the country.
“One of the speakers at the Seattle event this week was Hélène Martin, a 2008 UW computer science and linguistics graduate who has a unique perspective on the topic, having just finished her first year teaching computer science at Seattle’s Garfield High School. During a break in the workshop, she talked about CS4HS, what the past year at Garfield has taught her, and her advice for aspiring computer scientists.”
