CS Roadshow: Taking CS on the Road to Middle School Students

Computer science is one of the fastest-growing majors at UT. This year, we have around 1800 students in the Class of 2017, making computer science one of the largest majors in the College of Natural Science. The problem, though, is that in most cases, middle and high schools don’t actually offer that many CS-related courses. UTCS is trying to change that, however, with CS Roadshow, a program dedicated to educating students all over Austin about computer science.
