Education & Outreach
CI-WATER’s Education and Outreach team has engaged in a wide array of activities to enhance the public’s engagement with water and computer science, including developing learning resources for ongoing use such as Teaching Toolkits and curricula to bring water and computer science into formal and informal learning environments.
By bringing the work of scientists to students, educators and the general public, CI-WATER is helping prepare a STEM-literate citizenry that can help solve tomorrow’s challenges through STEM. Hundreds of people have participated in CI-WATER sponsored events, including Code Camps for teens, educator workshops, guest speakers, television broadcasts, public film screenings, and a cutting-edge graduate course for the next generation of water and computer scientists.
