The Computer Science Department at Stanford University, with generous support from Google, is holding a CS4HS workshop June 27-28 in the Gates Computer Science building on the Stanford campus. The workshop is aimed at helping K-12 teachers and administrators learn more about computing through hands-on activities, presentations, and discussions with Stanford faculty, industry speakers, and other educators. The workshop requires no previous programming experience (although you will need to bring a laptop computer to participate in the workshop).
A preliminary workshop program schedule is available here.

At Stanford, these materials are used in an introductory computing course for students with no prior programming/computing background. The materials work either stand alone, as a unit to convey and demystify how computers work, or to create interest for students who might in the future want to take a full-programming CS course. The materials can be used with a middle school or high school audience, and can work as a stand along unit as short as a few class hours.
