Welcome to Purdue University's K-12 Computer Science Outreach Program


The K-12 Outreach program within the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University is dedicated to enhancing computer science education for students across Indiana. As access to high-quality computer science instruction continues to expand statewide, there's a growing emphasis on integrating computer science into the K-8 science curriculum.

Purdue's College of Science K-12 Outreach program is at the forefront of supporting this educational evolution by addressing the unique needs of K-12 teachers and students. Through our initiatives and resources, we aim to empower educators with the tools and knowledge needed to effectively teach computer science concepts and skills, preparing students for success in a technology-driven world.

What we do

Through Purdue University's K-12 Computer Science Outreach Program we're dedicated to empowering science superheroes across the heartland and beyond. While we have a focus on Indiana teachers and students, our program extends far beyond the boundaries of Indiana and neighboring states. We believe that every student, regardless of their location, deserves access to high-quality computer science education.

At Purdue CS, we're proud to collaborate with the established "Superheroes of Science" YouTube channel through the College of Science Outreach Program. Together, we support educators who inspire and equip the next generation of innovators, problem-solvers, and creators. Through our joint efforts, we provide these superheroes with the support, resources, and professional development they need to spark curiosity, ignite passion, and unleash the full potential of their students.

Whether you're a teacher in a bustling metropolis or a rural community, our program is here to support you every step of the way. Together, we're shaping a future where every student has the opportunity to become a science superhero, making a difference in their communities and beyond.

Join us in our mission to transform education and empower the science superheroes of tomorrow. Together, we can inspire a new generation of leaders, thinkers, and innovators who will shape the future of technology and society.
