Georgia Tech will host a panel discussion on “Underrepresented Populations in STEM Careers: Why Is Progress So Slow?” on Tuesday, Jan. 28, at 2 p.m. in room 236 of the Global Learning Center. The event, presented by Georgia Tech Professional Education (GTPE) as part of Georgia Tech’s Career, Research, and Innovation Development Conference, is open to the public and also will be livestreamed here.
Every December there’s a huge influx of computer science education activities due to Computer Science Education Week (CSEd Week.) The Constellations Center for Equity in Computing (Constellations) regularly introduces students to computing concepts in Atlanta’s public school classrooms and expanded these opportunities during CSEd week.
The center reached more than 900 students at high schools in the Atlanta Public School (APS) district, a 500% increase from the same period in 2018, by hosting computer science carnivals that select teachers could opt to bring their classes to.
