We have established a research-practice partnership (RPP) to establish a computer science (CS) and computational thinking (CT)-focused STEM ecosystem at two middle schools. The STEM ecosystem model is used as a framework to address systemic barriers to student participation in computing. Creating a school-based CT/CS-focused STEM ecosystem through...
STEM ecosystem is an emerging model for identifying the barriers and support structures that students have in their learning trajectories in STEM. In this paper our university-based research team presents a CS/CT-focused STEM ecosystem strategy designed to address underrepresentation in computing fields. We describe our current and future work with...
