the course will be teaching.

This course can be useful for a very wide audience, ranging from
schools, universities, technical institutes, to people working  in
industry. One of the objectives is to get people excited about
technology, and to that end it would be great if you could pass on
information about the course to a wide audience through the various
contacts of the office of international and alumni affairs.
