Computer Science Education

For the last ten years, computer science education has been a cornerstone of our work through projects supported by an array of NSF-funded programs including BPC-A, RPP, CS10K, CE21,  MSP, CCLI/TUES/IUSE, ATE, S-STEM and GK- 12. As computer science education becomes fundamental to a comprehensive K-12 education and as institutions of higher education feel enrollment pressures, SageFox has been involved in projects that address policy reform, teacher professional development, curriculum, research-practice partnerships, shared data collection and pathway development.
