Get Involved

InfuseCS-NTThe InfuseCS team is working closely with upper elementary school teachers and students at partner schools in North Carolina and California on the design, development, and implementation of the learning environment. If you are interested in partnering with us, please complete our online form to let us know or contact us via email.

Involvement in the InfuseCS project will afford participating schools the opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary research team that is researching advanced educational technologies. Students and teachers at partner schools will assist in the co-design of InfuseCS activities as well as testing the learning environment in their classroom. Further, teachers have the opportunity to participate in professional development sessions (at no charge) to help teachers develop computer science skills as well as knowledge of best practices to leverage these skills in classroom settings. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our project activities have moved to a fully online format until in-person research activities can safely resume.
