MSU awarded NSF computing education grant

Jon Sticklen is a co-PI on the MSU team awarded an NSF grant to transform computing education. The project will align academia and industry in an effort to revitalize Michigan’s workforce.

The goal of this two-year grant is (1) to help students move into the workforce as agile thinkers who can use software and computational and strategic thinking skills to solve problems and (2) to develop a collaborative process to bring higher education and industry together to understand each other’s needs in computing education, and then to identify creative strategies to transform that education.
