Upcoming Opportunities & News
 
Midwinter Break Workshops!
February 16 & 20
Noon - 4 p.m.
Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering, UW Seattle
FREE


Discover the intersection of computer science and electrical engineering with the Arduino microcontroller! Students in these one day workshops will learn to write code in the Processing programming language to make simple games and programs. In addition, students will learn to build circuits using a breadboard, buttons, and LEDs. The students will then use their newly found skills to build circuits using buttons, switches, and knobs which act as controllers for the programs that they write.

This workshop is intended for high school students with no prior programming experience

CSE Tours
 
Last quarter we had over 450 middle and high school students visit the Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering. 

We are happy to provide tours of the CSE Building to student groups and organizations, with the hope that we can help to inspire students to pursue a career in computer science. 

Plan ahead! Sign your group up for a tour!

Computing Open House
December 5, 2015

To kick off CS Education Week and celebrate Grace Hopper's Birthday, we opened up our doors for our Annual Computing Open house. Students and families filled the Paul G Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering to meet with students and industry professionals to learn what computing is all about. There were many great booths from both our students and our industry partners and volunteers. We estimate we had over 600 people turn out over the four hours.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make this event possible!
