We in the STEM Education Network are very proud of Amanda Schantz (TUteach '17 alumnus, current math/computer science teacher at Central High School in Philadelphia) and Timothy Bovitt (current TUteach undergraduate student)! Amanda and Timothy will give a presentation at the UTeach STEM Educators Conference in Austin, TX later this month about our Compute-STEM program. Compute-STEM is a residential summer camp which immerses middle school students into a coding-infused STEM education experience. The curriculum emphasizes STEM skills as they relate to the Navy, and actual naval scientists and engineers are involved in instruction. Hopefully our successes with the Compute-STEM program will inspire similar programs at other UTeach-affiliated institutions. Amanda and Timothy's session is entitled, "Cracking the Code: Computer Science in General STEM Classes. Good luck to them both!
