STEM21+CS: Integrating Computer Science Principles into the High School STEM ...

NSF Awards: 1741148

Grades 9-12

Across Connecticut schools engaged in the Skills21 STEM+CS project are addressing real world problems by creating solutions that integrate the use of science and computer science.  Students in core high school science courses (biology, chemistry and physics) build their knowledge of computer science through scaffolding CS activities that address core content throughout the year.  Simultaneously students are working on a year long Innovation Challenge Project that allows them to apply their new content knowledge and CS skills to create a solution to a problem or to seize an opportunity to fill a gap in the market.  Final projects are judged at a statewide Student Exposition held in June.  Judges from industry and higher education are invited to watch students give a live pitch, present at a booth and demonstrate their project.  Students also create websites, a social media campaign and document their research as part of their required deliverables.  The goal of this project is to improve computer science knowledge by teaching it in core content areas so that more students are exposed to CS in high school.  Students use their CS knowledge to create new content and science and computer science become tools to solve problems.
