What is Computer Science?
Computer Science is the study of computers and computational systems. Computer Scientists deal mostly with software and software systems; this includes their theory, design, development, and application.
WyoCSZone is a Wyoming CS teacher community dedicating our efforts to fellow teachers and students within Wyoming. We act as a bridge for teachers, students, our communities, and the professional world by helping them gain confidence and build CS skills necessary to become community and business leaders.
The principle areas of study within Computer Science include artificial intelligence, computer systems and networks, security, database systems, human computer interaction, vision and graphics, numerical analysis, programming languages, software engineering, bioinformatics and theories of computing.
Although knowing how to program is essential to the study of computer science, it is only one element of the field. Computer scientists design and analyze algorithms to solve programs and study the performance of computer hardware and software. The problems that computer scientists encounter range from the abstract-- determining what problems can be solved with computers and the complexity of the algorithms that solve them – to the tangible – designing applications that perform well on handheld devices, that are easy to use, and that uphold security measures.

What we do with Computer Science (CS)...
The most important elements of each of our initiatives is our partnerships and our ability to
gain support from institutions, corporations and businesses. It is with our connections that we are able to provide the range of programs, events, and resources. For us, nothing is more important than providing opportunities for teachers, students, and our communities as that is what will ensure our communities remain strong and vibrant for generations to come.
