Computing is a ubiquitous part of modern life. However, it is also clear that large groups of our population are not yet included in computing research, education, and jobs. As a part of Rutgers-TCNJ collaborative research Project NUCLEUM, this annual workshop series tries to address this problem by using the research project outcome to provide educational experiences and tools that span various levels of the future computer science workforce pipeline. We aim to accomplish the following list of goals:
Student Workshop: High school students will be exposed to machine learning through one-day workshops at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ)
Teacher Workshop: K-12 teachers will gain professional development opportunity to learn how they can incorporate AI concepts in their classrooms
IMPORTANT (As of April 26, 2022): ALL event attendees must provide proof of vaccination or negative PCR test from a test taken no more than 72 hours before the event when entering an event. Face coverings are required in all Rutgers and TCNJ buildings. The workshops may be cancelled if COVID-related on-campus activity restrictions are applied. Any last minute changes will be notified to accepted participants individually, as soon as the information become available.
