Schools and Public Engagement

I am a keen advocate of engaging a wide variety of audiences in discussing computing and the role it plays in today’s society. Through engagement with a topic, the public can gain a greater understanding of the field, and perhaps encourage some inquisitive minds to push the boundaries even further in the future. I am currently involved in a wide variety of activities including programming workshops, public lectures and stand-up comedy. In addition, I am involved in a number of initiatives in which I am looking to engage school pupils in computing, through contributing to school curriculums and careers decisions.

If you are interested in speaking to me about outreach opportunities, you can email me at r.menzies@dundee.ac.uk or call me on +44 (0)1382 386540.

For teachers, you can find a list of workshops offered, all of which can be held at the University, or in your own school or organisation.
