MyCS: Middle-years Computer Science

Jun ‘15 – Aug ‘15

At Harvey Mudd College, Claremont, California

I am helping some teachers out with the lego activity, which encapsulates how computers transfer information.

I developed and fine-tuned a CS curriculum for 4th to 10th graders in a team of six.

I helped lead workshops to teach our curriculum to both teachers and students.

Also, one partner and I analyzed survey data to determine how well teachers engage with the curriculum. We found that teachers do support strong CS education, engage well with resources that are easy to introduce, and feel more confident and knowledgeable in teaching CS when provided these resources.

I co-authored and presented a paper at the SIGSCE ’16 conference.
