2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

We present the ITEST SPARCS project being conducted at University of Nebraska at Omaha. SPARCS aims to help middle school teachers integrate Computer Science lessons into the classes they teach, and spark student interest in pursuing computing-related educational pathways and careers. We have worked with teachers from diverse disciplines including STEM, language arts, social studies and music. We present our experiences and samples of student-created computational artifacts from the past year of SPARCS.
