Welcome, you are visiting CT Challenges

CT in Global Challenges
As computing has become integral to the practice of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), the STEM+Computing program seeks to address emerging challenges in computational STEM areas through applied research on the integration of computational thinking (CT) and computing activities within STEM teaching and learning in early childhood education through high school. This specific project is a program for minority girls and is an Exploratory Integration STEM+C endeavor to implement and test the integration of computational thinking in an extant research-based science program for low income minority girls. The extant program is Exploring Global Challenges, which will be adapted for the integration of computational thinking in its curriculum and activities. This integrative education approach is considered an inspiring, motivating, and rigorous context for bolstering minority girls' science and computational abilities.
