Computer Science for High Schools (CS4HS) is a free professional development program run by the School of Computer Science to provide high school teachers with resources to help them teach computer science principles to their students in a fun and relevant way. The program consists of workshops and course module materials.
We can bring you CS4HS for free because it is funded by an annual grant program offered by Google to promote computer science education worldwide. Through annual grants, CS4HS supports universities to provide professional development for local secondary and primary school teachers.
