In honor of Computer Science Education Week, the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech (Constellations) will be hosting computer science carnivals at Atlanta Public Schools Dec. 9-13.
To help Atlanta Public School system teachers prepare for a new requirement in Georgia schools to offer computer science courses within the next five years, the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing (Constellations) at Georgia Tech is expanding its programming to train and support educators.
Hundreds of organizations gathered in Salt Lake City, Utah, this month at the CSforALL Summit to pledge their commitments to improving and expanding computer science education across the United States. At the summit, the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech (Constellations) detailed its 2019-2020 commitment of sustainable professional teacher development.
The Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech recently welcomed new fellows Yolanda Payne and Sababu Barashango – joining veteran fellow Terry Foster – to play a critical role in the center’s mission in educating and empowering teachers to teach advanced placement (AP) computer science courses.
Sababu Barashango, the newest fellow at the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech, is soft-spoken, despite holding a third-degree black belt in martial arts. Numbers and math formulas are his love language and he likes to draw in his spare time. Drawn to computer science because of its ability to combine his artistic and mathematical interests, Barashango is looking forward to helping more students and teachers in the Atlanta Public School (APS) district, where he is partnering to teach computer science.
