Supporting Computer Science in South Carolina

High School Computer Science TeachersDr. Buell has been awarded an NSF grant to help students across South Carolina learn about Computer Science and the many opportunities the field offers. As part of this grant, the Expanding Computing Education Pathways Alliance and the University of South Carolina (Columbia) will collaborate to build state-based infrastructures to improve and support computer science in South Carolina.

This will include promoting ECEP summer camp seed funding opportunities and train-the-trainers workshops; seeking opportunities to draw upon the Experts Bureau and NCWIT resources to inform policy-makers and other education leaders; and furthering the development and broadening of computing education pathways in South Carolina.
