Melbourne to host computer science curriculum workshop
The University of Melbourne has announced it will be hosted a select group of teachers from across Victoria who will be attending a workshop aimed at creating a new secondary school curriculum based on computer science.
Dubbed 'iGeneration', the workshop will be sponsored by Google and hosted by the University of Melbourne with the goal of educating teachers about developments in Computer Science in order to get out a new message to students.
"Computer Science is a fascinating and rigorous area of study and it leads to diverse and rewarding employment opportunities", Melbourne University's Associate Professor Steven Bird said.
"Computer Science powers our information society, but the students we want to attract are still only able to study traditional subjects like Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. We hope to fix this problem."
