MSU helps increase computer science equity and access in Detroit

Since joining the MSU College of Education faculty in 2014, Professor Aman Yadav has been a leader in ensuring teachers and students have access to computer science education. A collaborative grant project for nearly $1 million from the National Science Foundation is expanding that work into new spaces — and with equity in mind.

“Broadly, our work at MSU has enabled pathways for students to be exposed to computing ideas and tools. Now, we need to go beyond just providing access,” Yadav explained. “We need to support computer science teachers in the classroom, so they’re providing quality CS instruction with a focus on social and racial justice issues. We are going beyond just providing access to CS by centering students, their families and their community in the classroom”
