CSE Outreach


Eta Kappa Nu’s Computer Science and Engineering Outreach Program serves as a platform for connecting local high school students with the technical expertise and developmental opportunities offered at UC San Diego. The initiative develops interactive online modules covering cutting-edge computer science topics to supplement high schools’ course material.

The outreach program is implemented via a fully-accredited, technical elective course (CSE 199), in which students develop projects on Stepik, an online platform tailored for next-generation educational techniques.



Currently, the outreach program has two projects:
1. Artificial Intelligence: Minimax – Build an AI bot that plays Tic-Tac-Toe (and never loses!).
2. Introduction to Computer Vision – Learn the fundamentals of how computers learn to recognize images.

Projects are designed to take one week (five days), with each part being fully self-contained. All questions and code are autograded, allowing quick implementation into high schools without prior training for educators.
