The focus of the course will be on planning events and learning about issues related to representation in computer science education. Students will take coordinating and/or supervisory roles at the sites where they run events, so they will also be expected to work on team-leadership skills. The events will largely take place at local primary and secondary schools, with the goal of raising student awareness of computer science as a field of study and profession and increasing student confidence in their ability to participate in computer science. This course does not count toward CS Major requirements.
