The Computer Science for High School (CS4HS) workshop is a yearly event for high school and primary school teachers.

The focus of this year’s workshop is Designing Connected Realities.

CS4HS offers two days of hands-on activities, networking opportunities and insight into the latest university research. 

Day 1 will cover Augmented Reality (AR) and how to use it in the classroom. Day 2 will look at how to set up a hub for Internet of Things (IoT) to be used in Digital Technologies, and Science.

Parallel sessions will be run on both days - one for high school teachers, the other for primary school teachers.
