Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunity
We are looking for motivated undergraduates with an interest in computing, technology, online environments, working with teens, and with strong written skills for a paid summer research opportunity.
We are designing an "Introduction to Design for Teenagers" curriculum. We will encourage teenagers to pick exciting projects such as redesigning a "Google interface for teens", writing a Facebook application, or prototyping a new multiplayer game. We will be working with a local high school summer program to teach an elective technology design course to local Atlanta teens.
The undergraduate student researcher can participate in the
project through a range of potential activities. They will help to implement an
online community by creating profiles of existing College of Computing
graduate students in the field. They can help to design the curriculum and
develop lesson plans. Through their participation in our research, the
undergraduate student will gain experience in the process of implementing an
entire research project, beginning with conducting background research, to
designing the experiment, to implementing it in the camps, to conducting
assessments and the analysis of data and results.
All interested students are encouraged to send resume and cover letter to Sarita Yardi at email@example.com.
