UTCS Roadshow

The UTCS Roadshow

The CS Roadshow takes a team of UTCS undergraduate and graduate students to middle school and high school classrooms to excite students about computer science. They give a 45-minute presentation about cutting-edge CS technology, challenge the students with logic puzzles, and demo a AIBO robotic dog that plays soccer.

Audiences:

  •  K-12 boys and girls

  •  Teachers, Parents, Educators

Goals:

  •  To show computer science as a broad and exciting field with the potential for diverse participants

  • To challenge stereotypes

  • To show the breadth of the field

  • To get students (and parents and teachers) excited about the field and its possibilities

  • To leave audiences wanting to find out more …hopefully through further studies
