Dear edu-sig members,

This email is to announce a summer workshop entitled "Python First: A
Lab-Based Digital Introduction to Computer Science":


This tuition-free workshop will be held on the Chapman University's campus
in Orange, California, June 19-22 (Monday - Thursday). The workshop is
intended for computer science educators who seek an alternative to either
purely commercial languages, such as Java or C++, or educational
languages, such as Scheme, for introductory computer science courses.

The workshop will introduce participants to interactive program design
with the Python programming language. Participants will also learn how to
customize and manage a 'Python First' digital study pack. Daily activities
will start with overview lectures and will continue with hands-on sessions
in the computer lab.

The summer workshop and all supporting materials are free. A nominal
registration fee will cover meals and snacks. Transportation costs and
lodging are the responsibility of the attendee.

Please see:


for complete details on the Python workshop and an on-line registration
form. Or contact Dr. Arnold Shugarman (Shugarman at chapman.edu) for more
