The computer science outreach coordinator at Montana Tech will visit Montana high schools to present an interactive coding demonstration. The goal of a school visit is to provide high school students information to help them decide if pursing a career in computer science or related fields is right for them. To do so, we strive to provide each of the following during the visit:
- Understanding of what computer science is
- Demonstration of writing code
- Examples of what a career in the field might look like
- Training opportunities
- Scholarship opportunities
We have prepared hands on presentations that can be adapted to the individual needs and wants of a school.
Most popular Demo – Makey Makey and Scratch – Students are able to write a program to move a cat around their computer screen by touching gummy worms.
Arduino Uno Lights and Joystick – Students write a program to make lights turn on based on which direction the joystick is pointing.
