Watchworthy Wednesday: Opportunity to Provide Computer Ed in K-12 Schools

Want to provide a computer science and computational thinking education project in K-12 schools? Teams of educators, researchers, community members and others interested in doing so are being offered the chance to be awarded 19 “CS for All” grants, totaling $20 million, from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

“With this solicitation, the NSF focuses on researcher-practitioner partnerships (RPPs) that foster the research and development needed to bring CS/CT to all schools,” says Nichole D. Pinkard, founder of the Digital Youth Network and associate professor in the School of Design College of Computing and Digital Media at DePaul University. “This type of solicitation that brings together educators, researchers, community members and district leadership to engage in shared inquiry toward improving learning environments for youth presents an excellent opportunity for the DML community members interested in computer science and computational thinking.”
