The Computer Science Collaboration Project (CSCP) uses the most successful elements of the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) to connect the various alliances and K-12 outreach organizations that are part of the Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) community, specifically focusing on outreach to and collaboration with persons with disabilities, African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and women.
Exemplary Practices for Engaging Hispanic/Latino(a) Youth in Computer Science
Building on research and evidence-based practice, the CSCP developed a list of Exemplary Practices designed to guide efforts to increase the number of Hispanic/Latino(a) youth in computer science. This is a working document enlisting the best research knowledge currently available and we welcome suggestions for additions and examples.
This general overview includes a separate, supplementary list of examples to further support practitioners. That document is called Exemplary Practices for Engaging Hispanic/Latino(a) Youth in Computer Science List with Examples.
Mini Grantee Updates
Project summary reports for both the Engaging Youth with Disabilities and the Engaging Hispanic/Latino(a) Youth completed mini-grant projects share detailed information on the design, collaborative efforts, outcomes, and budget for each mini-grantee. In addition to implementing a collaborative model to access valuable resources, several of these projects also developed resources for practitioner use. To further disseminate these resources, CSCP recently hosted two webinars showcasing several of these projects’ strategies for engagement, resources, greatest challenges, and biggest successes. Archived recordings and slides are available for both the Engaging Youth with Disabilities and the Engaging Hispanic/Latino(a) Youth Mini-Grantee Showcase webinars.
