The CS Pathways team presented at two sessions at the annual Massachusetts STEM Summit, held at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA on November 1, 2016.
Fred Martin joined researchers from two other ITEST projects in a session entitled Building Middle School Engagement in Math and Computer Science: Findings from the NSF ITEST Program. The session was organized by Bernadette Sibuma, a research associate at the STEM Learning and Research Center (STELAR) at Education Development Center, Inc. Fred’s presentation slides are available at bit.ly/cspathways-stelar-mastem16. This session was attended by approximately 50 people.
Later in the day, Fred Martin, Molly Laden, Akira Kamiya, and Diane Schilder jointly gave a whole session presentation, CS Pathways: A Model of Inclusive Middle School Computing for Social Good. The session was well-received by a smaller group of 15 people. Slides are available at bit.ly/cspathways-mastem16.
