MSTE staff, Unit 4 teachers, and College of Education faculty and students are working together to bring computing to all grades and all students. MSTE has been collaborating with Kenwood Elementary School teachers, other University of Illinois faculty & staff, and community members for several years through CTRL-Shift, a local professional and social group. As a result of these collaborations, Kenwood adopted a school-wide coding initiative three years ago and Kenwood teachers are now writing new curriculum with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) STEM+C initiative. They are developing new learning modules that embed computer science instruction within the Everyday Mathematics curricula currently used at the school. Everyday Mathematics was developed at the University of Chicago, which is a partner on the grant.
