Department of Computer Science

Schoolchildren working with their mobile phones and a computer

Schools, colleges and the public

We are actively involved in supporting schools in their adoption and expansion of computing, as well as engaging wider communities in our range of activities.

Computing at School

As the north west base of Computing at School (CAS), we promote the teaching of computer science in primary and secondary schools. This includes a series of development courses for teachers, student projects based in schools and events for school children.

We support teachers through workshops, training courses and with in-school help. We also provide a wide range of exciting activities for schoolchildren to engage them with the latest science and technology.

Activities include hands-on workshops (both in schools and on campus), discover days, national and local competitions, talks in schools by experts, support for school clubs and classroom activities.

Our University is also the north west base of Computing at School, and we offer the support of student ambassadors to help with curriculum development and delivery.
