10 years ago



Below are the details of the amazing speakers and workshops we have lined up for the Computing At School Scotland conference on Saturday 26th October.


It’s not too late to sign up!  Go to to get your ticket.  If you have already signed up then please tell your colleagues in other schools in your area – it’s sad but not every Computing teacher has heard about CAS.
