Engaging Hispanic/Latino(a) Youth in Computer Science: Mini-Grantee Showcase
Wednesday, December 12, 2012, 10:00 – 11:00 AM Pacific/1:00 – 2:00 PM Eastern
The vision of the Computer Science Collaboration Project (CSCP) is to efficiently increase participation of underrepresented groups in computer science opportunities and activities by effectively building collaborations between K-12, community-based organizations, higher education, and industry. To provide incentive and support to collaborate, the CSCP funded several collaborative mini-grant projects focused on engaging Hispanic/Latino(a) youth in computer science opportunities through the use of Exemplary Practices that include cultural competency, family involvement, computer science content, and broadening the image of computer science. This webinar presents a panel of completed mini-grantee projects from around the country as they share exemplary practices, program models, low-cost strategies and resources, along with their greatest challenges and successes.

Engaging Youth with Disabilities in Computer Science: Mini-Grantee Showcase
Monday, December 10, 2012, 10:00 – 11:00 AM Pacific/1:00 – 2:00 PM Eastern
The Computer Science Collaboration Project uses the most successful elements of the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) to connect various alliances and K-12 outreach organizations with a specific focus on outreach to and collaboration with youth with disabilities and underrepresented minority youth. In October 2011, the CSCP offered funding for mini-grant proposals engaging youth with disabilities in computer science opportunities through collaborative projects. Funded projects brought together over 36 cross-sector organizations across 6 states to address accessibility issues and empower youth to create new technologies. This webinar presents a panel of completed mini-grantee projects from around the country as they share promising practices, program models, low-cost strategies and resources, along with their greatest challenges and successes.
