UC Berkeley's Computer Science Education Day is part of the national CS Education Week. This event aims to inspire and motivate High School students to learn more about computer science, the opportunities it affords them, and exciting research and educational activities occurring on the UC Berkeley campus.

Learn About CS Education Week

Tuesday, December 4, 2018
8:30 am to 3:15 pm

The goals of CS Ed Day are to:

  • Describe the myriad of opportunities for which computer science education prepares K-12 students, into higher education and their careers
  • Provide information and activities for students, educators, parents, and IT professionals to advocate for computer science education at all levels, and
  • Eliminate misperceptions about computer science and computing careers.

The faculty, students and staff in Berkeley's computer science community look forward to welcoming a diverse group of participants to learn about the possibilities of computing and to engage in demonstrations, interactive labs, lunch, and more.

We do not allow individual registration for this event. Schools are invited through the local Computer Science Teachers Association network.
