Whether you sit in a middle school or high school class or teach at the front of the room, the College of IS&T presents a variety of summer workshops and other activities designed to provoke thought and stimulate learning.
The College offers numerous summer workshops for students ranging in age from 11 to 17. The topics cover a wide array of IT interests, from Adobe Flash and IT Innovation to Web Development, Mobile App Design and Robotics.
The week-long sessions cost only $150. For workshops with projects, parents are invited to attend a reception on Friday where students display the work they completed during the week. The 2012 workshops will be held in June and July. More information can be found at workshops.ist.unomaha.edu.
The past three years, IS&T has kicked off National Computer Science Education Week with a Computer Science Quiz Bowl for teams of area high school students. In the event held Dec. 3, 2011, teams from Westside High School placed first and third, while a team from Bellevue East finished second. Google, ConAgra and Union Pacific Railroad were sponsors of the event.
IS&T also presents workshops and classes designed for area teachers at all levels of instruction. In the summer of 2011, the Bioinformatics unit of the IS&T College hosted project-based summer training for high school and community college teachers.To more information or to register, click here!
