Engaging Youth with Disabilities in Computer Science:
Mini-Grantee Showcase. Date: Monday, December 10, 2012
Time: 10:00 - 11:00 AM Pacific
Join this live webinar and meet a panel of completed mini-grantee projects from around the country as they share promising practices, program models, low-cost strategies and resources, along with their greatest challenges and successes.
The Computer Science Collaboration Project uses the most successful elements of the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) to connect various alliances and K-12 outreach organizations with a specific focus on outreach to and collaboration with youth with disabilities and underrepresented minority youth.
In October 2011, the CSCP offered funding for mini-grant proposals engaging youth with disabilities in computer science opportunities through collaborative projects. Funded projects brought together over 36 cross-sector organizations across 6 states to address accessibility issues and empower youth to create new technologies.
