No Fear CS: Challenging the Status Quo to Advance CSforAll
Kamau Bobb, Ph.D.
Senior Director, Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech
Access to STEM education is access to power. Dr. Kamau Bobb, founding Senior Director of the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech University, will share his perspective on the role that K-16 educators, administrators, professional development providers and policy-makers can play to move beyond viewing STEM/CS education simply as a route to employment in the tech sector but as a tool for empowerment, particularly for students of color.
Lunch / General Session @ 11:30AM
Technology by Artists, Musicians and Dancers
Educational Technologist at The School at Columbia University
Computing and technology has long held a place with pioneering artists and performers, though most of us art world outsiders might be surprised to hear that. Discover some of the exciting work of prominent “creative technology” artists of the past and present, and discuss strategies for engaging your fellow teachers and students in computational New Media Art activities.
Exhibitor Fair / Device Petting Zoo @ 3PM – 5PM
The Exhibitor Fair and Device Petting Zoo allows teachers to meet with vendors and organizations in a relaxed reception environment, while also getting an up-close look at some of the latest devices coming to classrooms in the near future.
Exhibits will also be open from 8AM – 1PM on Wednesday, June 20.
