Who receives access CS/STEM courses K-12? What are the racial and gender demographics of students in these courses compared to post-secondary careers? Does CS/STEM education K-12 need to be democratized? Why or Why not? This session will discuss leveraging CS/STEM opportunities and equitably exposing all students to computational thinking and problem solving to make CS/STEM truly for all.
We will engage in data analysis related to CS/STEM in K-12 and post-secondary careers. We will also use think, pair, share as well as critique conversational protocols to prompts/questions from the facilitator.
