"I attended the CS4HS summer workshop at the UW was absolutely thrilled by the quality of the presentations, the breadth of material we covered and the quantity of classroom ready material we received. As a high school Math teacher I was curious and excited to learn how this workshop on Computer Science might prove useful in my class. In the end, I can say absolutely that this workshop changed my teaching." -- Judson Miller Roosevelt High School Math Teacher
The workshop is targeted at teachers with no computer science or programming experience.
