According to the abstract, “Building Student Retention through Individuated Guided coHort Training in Computer Science Researcher-Practitioner Partnership” is a small grant-size class proposal for NSF’s Computer Science for All program under the preK-8 strand, submitted by UNCG Greensboro. The RPP is a two-year project that will engage teachers, school leaders, guidance counselors and researchers to identify barriers and future work in the areas of structural, instructional and curricular improvements in middle schools to promote more black girls to gain interest and experience in computer science.
