College of Computing & Informatics Professor Jeffrey Popyack, PhD was quoted in an Aug. 24 Technical.ly Philly story on the REThink at Drexel University program, which allows local STEM teachers to research alongside Drexel computer science faculty. Click here to read the article
The REThink at Drexel program, a Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) Site in Engineering and Computer Science for Big Data, Machine Learning and CS Principles, is a seven-week summer research institute in computer science for STEM high school teachers and two-year college faculty in the City of Philadelphia and Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. The objectives of the program are to build partnerships between high schools, community colleges and the university, introduce teachers to cutting edge research in the computer science community, inform and excite them about computer science principles and computational thinking, produce learning materials for use in high school and community college STEM curricula, and expand the pipeline of students studying STEM and computing curricula in college. The program is made possible through a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
