Welcome to "Georgia Computes!"

by bjordin last modified 2012-03-15 14:56

We are an NSF "Broadening Participation in Computing" alliance focused on increasing the number and diversity of computing students in the state of Georgia.

Be sure to visit "News" (on left) for latest on "Georgia Computes!"

The goal of this effort is to improve the computing education pipeline across the state of Georgia.

In this effort we:
  • Attract girls into computing with activities in camps and afterschool programs with our partners, the Girl Scout Council of Northwest Georgia, the YWCA of Georgia, and Cool Girls.
  • Offer summer camps to 4th - 12th grade students to give them an engaging introduction to computing. We especially target under-represented minorities and females.
  • Teach high school teachers how to teach computing using motivating examples, in cooperation with our partner, the Georgia Department of Education.
  • Offer workshops to University System of Georgia computing faculty on new approaches to motivate computing education.
  • Support USG computing faculty in offering their own summer camps, with training, curriculum, and seed funding, to recruit students into their computing programs.

The researchers on this project (see more details on Projects page) are:
