    Student Success in Computer Science

    Redeveloping Michigan Tech’s introductory computer science courses has not been an easy feat. But for Leo Ureel, it’s meaningful work. “It’s about setting the right environment,” he says. Humans learn best when we communicate with others. We’ve taken what we know works in industry and applied it to the classroom. In the old model, instructors…


    Computer Science Faculty, Students Teach Kids to Code

    Charles Wallace and Leo Ureel, along with two of their graduate students and six undergraduates in Computer Science, are spending time in Houghton and Hancock schools this week, giving elementary, middle and high school students hands-on experience with computer coding. The programs are in observance of Computer Science Education Week. They include two Hour of…


    K-12 Teachers Computer Science Workshop at Tech

    Twenty school teachers from across Michigan will be at Michigan Tech for a three-day workshop Monday through Wednesday. The workshop, called CS4all, will help teachers learn to integrate computer science and computational thinking into their classrooms. Sponsored by grants from Google, the workshop is the first step toward establishing an online “community of practice” to…
