Computer Science Unplugged
at McWane Center
With Dr. Tim Bell
On June 27, 2007, I hosted Dr. Tim Bell's visit to Birmingham. Tim is the author of the Computer Science Unplugged book (which is freely available) and literally tours the world teaching computer science to children in a fun and engaging show. During his visit, Tim gave a seminar lecture to adults and educators at UAB, and then presented the Unplugged show to a packed auditorium at the McWane Science Center. Over 100 students from Jefferson County attended the show, which was sponsored by the National Science Foundation (under CAREER grant 0643725).
The flyer used to advertise Tim's talk is available here.
