Schools Outreach Overview

Overview Schools Outreach

The School of Computer Science and Information Technology at University College Cork works very hard to provide outreach programmes to primary and secondary school pupils in Munster. Our programmes are designed to promote computer science education prior to entry into third level. We liase closely with students, teachers and parents so we can offer programmes that are relevant to the student needs. Our current outreach activies include:

 

Munster Programming Training - Junior
