The UTCS Roadshow

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.

Audiences:

  • K-12 students
  • 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
