Abstract/ Summary

In the fall of 2018. the RiSE Center was awarded $ 1.25 M to study how computer science be successfully integrated into science instruction at the middle school level. This research study is a 3-year project during which 30 middle school science teachers will partner with researchers and staff at the RiSE Center to develop and implement science modules that include an integrated computer science component. Our hope is to gain an understanding of how computer science can be taught within a science program in a way that supports student learning in both the science discipline and computer science in addition to identifying what supports are needed to help teachers integrate computer science into their instruction successfully.
