Due to circumstances beyond our control, we made the difficult decision to cancel CS4teachers2022.

We have issued refunds to those who have paid the registration fee and we hope you will join us for future teacher-focused events and training as we try to find the best way to offer these opportunities in the future.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

Please feel free to contact our committee if you have any questions, comments, or concerns at outreach@cs.washington.edu.
