Professor Yolanda Reimer, together with UM colleague Lisa Blank (T&L) and other faculty from around the state, has been awarded a grant from the NSF CS10K program to “Grow Computer Science Curriculum, Diversity, and Teacher Preparedness across Montana.” The goals of this project are to enhance computer science offerings at high schools around the state, increase the diversity of students who engage in computer science, and add to the number of teachers trained to teach CS at the high school level. Professor Reimer will co-teach the “Joy and Beauty of Computing” class at Sentinel HS in Missoula this fall, and develop a follow-on course in Computer Science Principles. Professional development opportunities will be offered to teachers from around the state beginning in the summer of 2017.
