Outreach

Outreach Banner
Just as Computer Science provides a world of possibility, studying at University can transform the way a person perceives the world and the opportunities available to them. Our aim in outreach is to raise the aspirations of young people for higher education and to help pupils make informed choices.

We have a variety of ongoing programmes designed to engage with the wider community, many of which have a particular emphasis on working with schools. The aim of our programmes is to raise aspirations for higher education and to help pupils develop a better understanding of Computer Science.

We are proud to work with schools, professional bodies, government and academic institutions in raising the profile of Computer Science. Almost all of our projects involve working with pupils, teachers, parents and support providers. For example, our Creative Coding project was a Warwick Arts Centre initiative for Year 7 students to produce a digital art installation, with the help of local digital artist Ashley Brown. The aim is not only to show the students that creativity is an important part of science, but to share this with others.

As part of our outreach we regularly hold events and produce resources to support teachers delivering Computer Science, particularly in local schools. We are always looking for new ways to be involved with schools so if you would like to collaborate on idea we would be happy to hear from you, particularly if you are a teacher and would like to offer support to colleagues.
