Energizing ECS

Jump to: navigation, search

Students: Sujeeth Goud Ramagoni, Sam Mazzone

Mentor: Dr. Dennis Brylow

Project Background

Exploring Computer Science (ECS) is a year-long, research-based, high school intro-level computer science curriculum and teacher professional development program that focuses on broadening participation in computing. We support teachers and districts through implementation of the course regardless of school resources.

Project Description

Due to the pandemic, teaching has been a challenge for all teachers. We are hoping to create a tool to tweak the ECS curriculum to accommodate for issues that teachers have been experiencing.
