Welcome to the School of Computer Science Outreach Roadshow!

.....developed by Women@SCS

Initially supported in part by the NSF-ALADDIN Center
Carnegie Mellon University

This is a highly interactive presentation by undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon who talk about why/how they began studying the area, their current experiences, what Computer Science means to them now, and their future hopes and expectations. The middle and high school presentations include a guessing game, a slide show of CS applications, algorithm style puzzles, a robot demo, and much more. The spin-off graduate level Roadshow (presented to undergrads) includes general information on going to graduate school and short research talks.

Here you can download a powerpoint version of our Roadshow with ideas for starting your own Roadshow.

Women@IT Presentation
Women@IT has developed a graduate level Roadshow, which is presented to undergraduates. This is part of an outreach component, implemented by our graduate students, to publicize the range of their research interests and to encourage women to consider applying to doctoral level studies in computing-related disciplines.

Roadshow Extras
Here are some links to interesting videos and websites that can be used to supplement the material presented in the Roadshow.
