The University of Washington Computer Science & Engineering department is running a workshop this summer targeted at high school or middle school teachers of math, science and computer science. This year we are also offering a one day option for school counselors or administrators who would like to learn a little more about the exciting field of Computer Science.
We’d love to have you join us!
Specifically, CS4HS aims to:
- Expose participants to exciting examples of computer science operating in close relationships with other disciplines.
- Broaden participant’s view of computer science and the way it is shaping Washington’s communities and people–and those of the entire world.
- Provide teachers with basic strategies for computational problem solving and give you the vocabulary to relate these concepts to students and subject material.
- Provide hands-on experience with visual and physical programming environments (No prior programming experience necessary).
- Explore opportunities to broaden students’ interest in computer science and dispel myths about what computer science.
