Starting in 2018, we plan to regularly hold a series of workshops on using Python for data analytics, data science, and machine learning.
For Middle and High School Students
- We offer a number of summer programs for middle and high school students, including
the Creative Game Design Camp and the NSA/NSF-sponsored GenCyber boot camps.
- As an official chapter of 100 Girls of Code, we organize several free workshops throughout the year to introduce girls ages 10-18
to coding. These workshops have covered various topics including Scratch, App Inventor,
different locations, including the U of M, Christian Brothers University, St. Mary's
Episcopal School, and Hutchison School.
Keep an eye on our chapter Facebook page for details of upcoming workshops!
- 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.
- Our faculty and students have helped teach several pre-college computer science courses with Memphis nonprofit CodeCrew. Funded collaborations have included the TigerCrew project, which involved having U of M undergraduates teach computer science using the Unity 3D game engine. TigerCrew was funded with an $18,500 Strengthening Communities grant from the U of M School of Urban Affairs and Public Policy.
