Do you need resources to introduce your high school students to the field of computer science? Would you like to more fully integrate principles of computing and computational thinking into your classroom? The University of Michigan's CS4HS workshop is designed to support the activities of high school computer science teachers and to establish a dialog about the focus and requirements of collegiate CS programs, so that high school students can be better prepared for a future in computer science.
CS4HS is an outreach program run by the U-M Computer Science and Engineering Division (CSE) and will take place at the Bob and Betty Beyster Building on the U-M North Campus on August 20 and 21, 2013. The workshop will include lectures on CS research, technology demos, interactive sessions, and more. Teachers who attend the full workshop will qualify to receive State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs).
CSE supports and often runs additional outreach programs, from K-12 summer camps to programs for educators. These programs are administered by the Center for Engineering Diversity and Outreach.
