The School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science reaches out to the wider community with a number of activities and individual research projects.
cs4fn is our flagship online and print magazine for school-age students covering computing and other technologies. Sister publications have included booklets on computer science magic, and series on computational thinking, Electronic Engineering for fun and Audio! on Audio Engineering, which is a key research theme of the School. If your school is in the UK and you would like to sign up to receive copies of future editions please use the purple form here. We can also send out copies of some of our back issues of magazines and other material (while stocks last), please fill in the blue form here.
Throughout the year we also run a series of events aimed at school children, including the First Lego League (mid January), the IET Faraday Challenge (mid May), and the Festival of Code competition (start of August). For more events consult our calendar:
The School is also keen to visit local schools to introduce our exciting work to a wider audience and dispel some of the myths about IT and Computer Science. To see what we can offer, please our Schools pages.
