Grades 9-12

The Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech serves as a hub and national leader for research and advocacy at the intersection of educational equity and computing. It brings together the results of research and the experience of programs to construct a constellation that will light the pathway for all students to gain access to computing. 

Constellations was created with a mission to ensure that all students—especially students of color, women, and others underserved in K-12 and post-secondary institutions—have access to quality computer science education, a fundamental life skill in the 21st century. 

Constellations just completed its first year in the classroom where the center taught AP Computer Science Principles at five high schools in the Atlanta Public School district. While teaching the course, the centers three fellows also taught a teacher of record the course material, equipping them to teach computer science in the future. In the centers first year, we were able to give over 200 students access to computer science education and train 5 teachers. 

The center is creating a hybrid-instructional course that can be taught by teachers nationwide.
