The McMaster Department of Computing and Software is running an outreach program, the details of which can be found at the recently revamped website: http://outreach.mcmaster.ca. The program provides resources to students, teachers and parents to learn and have fun with Computer Science and Software Engineering. In particular, the outreach program is now able to conduct classroom visits with teachers that request them: http://outreach.mcmaster.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=38&Itemid=56.
Here is one testimonial from a teacher who participated in a classroom visit:
“My students found the outreach program to be very informative and were excited to learn about an area of study that is relevant to their lives. They are looking forward to further exploration of computer science and are eager to take part in any workshops that may be available to them.” – Cherie Lewis, Gr. 7 teacher at W.H Ballard Elementary School
