Center for STEM Research Receives NSF Grant

Hofstra’s Center for STEM Research has won a $999,968 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support a professional development program that will serve as a prototype to prepare the nation’s high school technology and engineering (T&E) teachers to lead an Advanced Placement (AP), computer science principles course.

The project, called Exploring Computation Integrated Into Technology and Engineering (ExCITE), will enhance the NSF-developed Beauty and Joy of Computing (BJC) curriculum, an introduction to computer science program designed for non-majors, with real-world, hands-on problem-solving challenges to increase student engagement. 

Hofstra University’s Center for STEM Research is submitting this proposal in collaboration with The International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA), computer science (CS) faculty from North Carolina State University and Boston College, and state education departments and local school districts in Maryland and Virginia.

Visiting scholar Anthony Gordon and Dr. Michael Hacker, co-director of the Center for STEM Research (CSR) will oversee the program with the assistance of 29 teachers nationwide.
