The theme of issue #26 is Serious Fun and it celebrates the life and work of Prof Peter McOwan who died earlier this year after an illness. Peter co-founded the CS4FN project (magazine and website) with Prof Paul Curzon in 2004 and the first magazine was produced in 2005. You can read and download PDFs of our CS4FN and related products (we have a mini magazine for primary school children) back catalogue here.

The project aims to demystify computing and show how computing skills and knowledge can be used by a wide range of people working in a wide range of jobs, hobbies or conservation.

We send over 23,000 copies of each issue (generally two a year) to over 2,400 subscribing UK school teachers (not a subscriber yet? A teacher in the UK? Sign up, free using the purple ‘new subscribers‘ form).
