How it all works

A series of workshops designed to bring computing science alive can be downloaded free from the internet all teachers have to do is register.

The Computer Science Inside project, based at the University of Glasgow's department of computing science, aims to make youngsters passionate about computer science by teaching them how the technology they use on a daily basis works, such as mobile phones, MP3 players, the internet.

Each workshop takes around 40 minutes. Topics covered include: how does Google give us such useful results? And how do computers do a million things at once, allowing you to play a CD while typing into MSN messenger and receiving email?

Teachers can not only download the workshops, but also request that an expert from Glasgow University deliver a tutorial to get them started using the materials or deliver a workshop to pupils.
