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.
