Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
Come join an amazing team of computer science education researchers in Miami, Florida for two weeks in the summer (squeezing it in between Spring semester and your internship). Learn about the scholarship of computer science education and participate in research grounded in areas of inquiry focused on the underrepresentation of Black and Hispanic women in computer science.
No prior research experience required. Undergraduates ONLY. This is a paid opportunity with travel and accommodations covered for your time in Miami.
Due to an overwhelming response the Summer 2020 application is closed.
Computer Science Education Research
The students that currently work with Dr. Ross are students pursuing a traditional computer science Ph.D. with a focus on computer science education research. The students answer burning questions related to computer science education.
LEARN-CS students leverage established rigorous educational research methods to answer questions related to engagement, persistence, and learning in computer science.
