Department of Energy national labs provide opportunities for students to interact with STEM professionals and learn STEM skills through research-based curricula. Berkeley Lab has developed a data science curriculum in which students apply data analysis and coding skills on datasets from researchers.

Attendees will learn how to integrate data science and coding into their STEM classes through an open source, research-based curriculum developed at Berkeley Lab.

At its September 2022 International Global Computer Science Conference (CSEdCon), CODE.Org recognized Maryland and the Maryland Center for Computing Education as the nation leaders building an infrastructure that offers high quality computer science courses in every high school in the state. Presenters in this session will share the critical elements of their work to create this nationally recognized computer science infrastructure. This presentation will focus on adaptable strategies and outcome data for building and sustaining an equity-centered computer science teaching and learning infrastructure. Specifically, presenters will share the types of local and state-level financial commitments, intellectual CS content knowledge, constituent buy-in, and personnel/individual commitments are needed. Finally, attendees will learn some specific strategies for recruiting teachers and students from historically under-represented groups into computer science education and careers.

Attendees will learn the K-12, higher education and business resources needed to create an equity-centered computer science teaching and learning infrastructure, including financial investments; intellectual/content; personnel/individuals; advocate engagement

Student-Centered Computing (SCC), is a new CS curriculum for middle and high school students. This full-year curriculum, introduces students to computer science skills and concepts as they investigate and advocate for solutions to a problem of their own choosing.

The SCC curriculum provides students with an engaging introductory computer science experience that encourages all students to continue in CS. Key elements include a collaborative, PBL approach and culturally authentic practices that support students’ voice, choice, and sense of belonging.
