The University of Washington Computer Science & Engineering department is pleased to announce the offering of our three day CS4HS workshop this summer. CS4HS is designed for high school and middle school teachers of math, science and computer science who would like to learn more about the exciting field of computing. We’d love to have you join us!
Specifically, the goals of the CS4HS workshop are to:
• Expose you to interesting examples of how computer science operates in close relationship with other disciplines.
• Broaden your view of computer science and the way it is shaping Washington’s communities and people–and those of the entire world.
• Teach you the basics of computational problem solving, and provide you the vocabulary to relate these concepts to the subject material you teach your students.
• Give you hands-on experience with visual and physical programming environments. (No programming experience necessary!)
• Explore opportunities for you to broaden your students’ interest in computer science and dispel common myths about the field.
