These workshops have covered various topics including Scratch, App Inventor, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Python, and Java. Workshops have been hosted at a number of different locations, including the U of M, Christian Brothers University, St. Mary's Episcopal School, and Hutchison School.

  • We hold an annual CS Open House, where we invite local high school students and teachers to spend a day visiting our campus to learn more about computer science. This is usually scheduled for the Friday of Computer Science Education Week in December. A reservation link will be posted on our events calendar about a month prior to the event.
