Workshops for School Students!

If you want to post a flyer at your school/workplace, use this one: Flyer1. Thanks!

.

Most ISDs have designated one or two days in October as "Staff development days / Student holidays". Since most parents will be working on those days, we decided to offer a good collection of programming workshops so that school students can visit our campus and have fun while learning to do some programming!

Date

Holiday for …

Monday, October 7

Garland ISD, CFBISD, Wylie ISD

Monday, October 14

Friday, October 18

Plano ISD, Dallas ISD high schools

Monday, October 21

Plano ISD, Harmony Schools

Monday, October 28 Dallas ISD

While these days have been selected based on ISDs' calendars, registration is NOT restricted to those ISDs – everyone including homeschooled students & private school students are welcome to attend. Even the college students can use these workshops to refresh their skills and adults can consider them as continuing education too. In simple words, all of these workshops are open to every one – no restrictions! If none of these days will work for your school/ISD & several students are interested in these workshops, email us to csk12@utdallas.edu - we can work together to make it happen!

.

Unless explictly stated,  all Elementary kids' workshops will be conducted in CS labs & we will use the desktop machines there – no need to bring your own laptop to the workshop. All middle/high school workshops are conducted in regular classrooms, so you are required to bring your own laptop. Windows laptop is preferred though Mac or Linux laptop may work for most workshops (.NET workshops require Windows laptops). Friends/siblings can share a laptop and take turns to do hands-on exercises (we do not recommend this approach though).

Detailed information about each workshop can be found at bit.ly/ccutd and facebook.com/CSK12OutreachUTD/events. Visit bit.ly/ccutd  to register. Fee for each workshop will be $20 for advance registrations and $30 during the final week of registration. No refunds on cancellations, but full refund will be processed if we decide to cancel a workshop due to low enrollment, or we will allow you to transfer to another workshop conducted on that day. Lunch will be provided at 12 noon for all workshop participants. We hope to see you soon at UT-Dallas!

To park in the UTD campus, you need to print the parking pass, use Green-colored parking space, and display the parking pass in the dashboard of your car. Waterview Pkwy is the least confusing way to enter UT Dallas campus. Enter Drive A, then take left into Drive H. Lot I and H will be on your right side. If you forget to print the parking pass, no worries – you can stop by our visitor center and get a visitor pass. If you do not follow these steps, you will be ticketed! If you are new to UT Dallas campus, please review http://www.utdallas.edu/maps/ to get an idea. ECSS building is right in the middle (close to Lots I and J) & ECSN building is next to it. You can also use white-colored visitor parking spaces, but you need to pay hourly parking fee. See www.utdallas.edu/parking for more details.
