Community Overview


The Department of Computer Science sponsors and organizes a number of community initiatives to encourage students to discover and explore Computer Science and technology. By giving back to the community, we hope to contribute to the development and growth of technology in Saskatchewan.

Our outreach initiatives range from hands-on workshops to fully credited advancement programs, with a wide target audience of elementary, high school and university students, as well as industry. For more information on how to attend or volunteer at any of these events, please contact our Outreach Coordinator.

  

K-12 Teaching Materials

We want to share our expertise with Computer Science teachers and educational groups. By providing sample Computer Science problems and a directory of online resources, we aim to contribute to the development of Computer Science education.

Computer Science Early Start Program

This is an opportunity for highly talented high school students who are interested in Computer Science to get an early start on their academic careers and enroll in first-year university courses. Students will take two full courses over the summer, with the same content, workload and expectations as a first year university student.

PD for High School Teachers

We offer professional development workshops for high school Computer Science teachers. These workshops are sponsored by Google CS4HS which allows teachers to attend free of charge.

Community Events

A number of events are held throughout the year to promote and engage students in Computer Science. We offer educational discovery events, community involvement opportunities and more. 

Computer Science Alumni

We recognize the impact that our alumni make on research and students' experiences, value maintaining and growing these relationships, and encourage our alumni to stay in touch and share their success stories with us.
