November 3

Renee Fall, Project Manager, College of Information and Computer
Sciences, UMass Amherst
Rick Adrion, Professor Emeritus, College of Information and Computer
Sciences, UMass Amherst

Massachusetts is developing new K12 standards for digital literacy and
computer science. What might the new standards mean for students,
teachers, and school leaders? Come hear about the process, status, and
implications.
How are computer science concepts being introduced in a way that
engages more and more diverse students? Learn about the Massachusetts
Exploring Computer Science Partnership (MECSP) and opportunities to
bring a new introductory course to high schools.



STEM seminars are held at 4PM on the first and third Tuesdays of each
month during the academic year at UMass in Hasbrouck 138. Everyone is welcome; no
reservations are needed, and there is no charge.

Parking is available in the Campus Center Garage.
