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 Young boy sitting in front of computer and smiling at cameraExemplary Practices for Engaging 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.

The CSCP also developed a list of examples that correspond to each practice to further support practitioners in the implementation of the Exemplary Practices. These examples, along with the references cited in the development of the Exemplary Practices, can be found in the Exemplary Practices and Examples for Engaging Hispanic/Latino(a) Youth in Computer Science.

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.
