Reach out to the next generation

Programs for elementary and high school students

GIRLsmarts4tech Workshops

Since 2003, we have been organizing day-long workshops for Grade 6 girls. The goals of the workshops are to show girls that computer science and technology are fun, and to raise awareness of computer science as a possible career path. Your company can help build bridges to with the next generation of computer scientists by sponsoring one of our workshops. For more information, please see the GIRLsmarts4tech page.


In January 2007, our department launched a series of Saturday morning workshops for Grade 8 to 12 students. In TechTrek workshops, we pair a faculty member with an industry speaker to give talks on interesting topics ranging from graphics to artificial intelligence to networking. Each talk is followed by a hands-on activity for the students. Companies can become involved in the workshop series either by sponsoring a workshop or by sending speakers.
