The CS Roadshow takes a team of UTCS undergraduate and graduate students to local elementary, middle, 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 teach students about the applications of CS in their everyday lives.
- K-12 students
- Teachers, parents, educators
