Connect2Tech: Supporting Computer Science and Computational Creativity

New York City is the nation’s second largest and fastest growing technology hub, with tech-related jobs increasing by over 28% in the past 5 years. However, few teachers are prepared to teach computer science (CS). The after-school field and expanded learning programs can fill this gap by offering exposure to STEM careers, creating on-ramps for computer science, and empowering people to express themselves with technology.

FUSE: Next Generation

This brief by TASC, Every Hour Counts and ORGE Innovation Consulting presents a strategy to create real-world science learning experiences for kids that integrate Next Generation Science Standards with social and emotional learning experiences. Leveraging external experts, community integration and project-based learning, the model builds flexible science programs in both formal and informal settings. While intended for use by New York, Boston and Providence, the Frontiers in Urban Science (FUSE) initiative cities, this brief could be useful to STEM educators, community partners and district leaders nationwide who are forging new paths to expand access to STEM learning and opportunities
