DREU - Summer 2009

Alice in Carolinaland

Welcome to my summer experience with DREU - Distributed Reasearch Experience for Undergraduates. As an undergraduate who is interested in both computer science and education I have an amazing opportunity to participate in a research project that combines these two fields. I want to thank the CRA for their support and effort in providing me with this experience.

For 10 weeks I will be collaborating with other undergraduate students under the mentorship of Dr. Susan Rodger at Duke University. The focus of this research is to use the program Alice to introduce middle school, and high school students to the wonderful world of programming and computer science through creative, interactive and meaningful ways.
