CE21-Maryland is a set of related projects with the goal of increasing high school computer science expertise and statewide support in Maryland for computing education.
CE21 – Maryland’s activities are supported by partnerships between the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), University of Maryland, College Park, UMBC’s Center for Women in Technology (CWIT), UMBC’s Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, CSTA-M (the Maryland chapter of the Computer Science Teachers Association),
multiple Maryland K-12 school systems and high school teachers, and the Maryland State Department of Education.
Current and Past CE21 – Maryland projects include:
- CS Matters in Maryland, an NSF-funded project to develop curriculum and train teachers in the new CS Principles course
- ECEP Alliance mini-grant, an NSF-supported community building and strategic planning project to implement statewide reform of CS education in Maryland
- The original CE21 – Maryland planning project
- An NSF-funded TUES project, Transforming the Freshman Experience of Computing Majors, to design a freshman design course for computing majors
- The ACTIVE Center, a new classroom at UMBC that is designed to facilitate active learning
Goals for P-12 Computing Education in Maryland:
The ECEP Maryland Computing Education Steering Committee met in January 2016 to define 1- to 15-year goals for computing education in Maryland.
