We engage with schools and colleges across the North West, supporting and inspiring pupils and teachers to try some hands-on computing, to hear about our research and to find out about life at university.
In the past we have organised a number of events alongside the Computing At School initiative (CAS). Lancaster University was one of the 10 regional centres for Computing At School from 2016 to 2018. We ran workshop for teachers, loaned resources to schools, demonstrated how to use them, and encouraged pupils and teachers to benefit from them.
We now support teachers and pupils through hosting workshops run by the National Centre of Computing Education. We also run many of our outreach activities in collaboration with the Institute of Coding
