CS4HS is a workshop for high school and middle school computer science teachers that introduces new and emerging concepts in computing and provides tips, tools and guidance on how to teach them. The ultimate goals are to "train the trainer," develop a thriving community of high school CS teachers and spread the word about the awe and beauty of computing.

Google says "In 2011 we're expanding the program considerably and hope to double the number of schools we funded in 2010. If you're a university, community college, or technical School in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Middle East or Africa and are interested in hosting a workshop at your institution, please visit CS4HS site to submit an application for grant funding. Applications will be accepted between January 18, 2011 and February 18, 2011.

In addition to submitting your app, on the CS4HS website you'll find info on how to organize a workshop, as well as websites and agendas from last year's participants to give you an idea of how the workshops were structured in the past. There's also a collection of CS4HS curriculum modules that previous participating schools have shared for future organizers to use in their own program."
