  1. Computer Science RoadshowsDr. Carol Frieze, SCS and Women@SCS Students: Jana Diesner, Ed McFowland, and Gabi MarcuSchool of Computer ScienceCarnegie Mellon University Explorations in Computer Science for High School Educators Please acknowledge Women@SCS if you use our Roadshow Template—Thanks!

  2. What is a CS Roadshow? • An Outreach Presentation aiming to: • Spread the word about computer science and • spark interest in the field! • To broaden understanding of computer science by • illustrating some computing concepts and showing a • range of applications. • Show that computer science is an expansive and • exciting field with the potential for diverse participants. Since 2003 several THOUSAND K-12 students, teachers and parents have participated in our SCS Outreach Roadshows

  3. Roadshow for Carnegie Mellon Visitors

  4. Roadshow in the Middle School Classroom

  5. Roadshow at TechNights

  6. Roadshow at AAAS Family Science Days (AAAS = American Association for Advancement of Science)

  7. Roadshow in the Local Coffee Shop

  8. Roadshow at Take-Your-Child-to-Work Day

  9. WELCOME! SCS Outreach Roadshow School of Computer Science Carnegie Mellon University http://women.cs.cmu.edu/

  10. Who We Are Gabi Jana Ed

  11. Who is a Computer Scientist? ? Ready to guess

  12. YES!

  13. YES!

  14. Yes!

  15. No! She’s an Astro Physicist

  16. YES!

  17. What Is Computer Science?

  18. Computer Science is all about solving problems… …and using the computer to solve some very difficult problems.

  19. Who Uses the Internet? Who Uses E-mail and IM?

  20. Some Examples: Purchasing music, movies, etc… Managing money (online banking) Ordering food Getting directions Playing games And SO many others…

  21. Here’s the BAD news… Crime has also gone online …

  22. Many Computer Scientists Work on Internet Safety

  23. Cryptography Key A = N B = O C = P D = Q E = R F = S G = T H = U I = V J = W K = X L = Y M = Z Can you break the code? FPVRAPR

  24. Cryptography Key A = N B = O C = P D = Q E = R F = S G = T H = U I = V J = W K = X L = Y M = Z Can you break the code? FPVRAPR SCIENCE

  25. The Turing Test & Human Computation Can you tell the difference between a human and a computer? The CAPTCHA & reCAPTCHA projects was developed by computer scientists from the Aladdin Center at Carnegie Mellon http://www.captcha.net

  26. It’s Magic! … or is it?

  27. The Magic of Computer Science! For tricks and information check out: Computer Science Computer Science for Fun Unplugged http://www.cs4fn.org/ http://csunplugged.org/

  28. What Does Computer Science have to do with Art?

  29. Computer Animated Films...

  30. Computer Animated Films

  31. …are made by Computer Scientists

  32. What Does Computer Science have to do with Sports?

  33. Motion Analysis

  34. Does your computer ever make you feel like this?

  35. Computer scientists can help!

  36. Human-Computer Interaction Design, Psychology, Computer Science

  37. Computer Science is about ????...

  38. Computer Science is about problem solving Lets solve a problem! In computer science we build Algorithms… a sequence of steps/instructions to solve a problem

  39. Problem Solving A farmer has to get a sheep, a carrot and a wolf over the river to the grassy field. BUT he can only take one of them with him at a time …

  40. Problem Solving BUT if left alone, The wolf will eat the sheep The sheep will eat the carrot

  41. Getting Everyone Across River Alive!

  42. ….another CS-Related Topic Did you know that problem solving using computers can help save the environment?

  43. Going for a drive • You drive to an intersection where you can turn left or right. • Which turn is faster to make?

  44. Going for a drive • If you turn left, how many lanes do you have to cross?
