- NCWIT AspireIT Reconfigures to Meet Growing Demands for Computing Learning Experiences
NCWIT AspireIT (www.aspirations.org/aspireit), a program designed to teach K-12 girls programming fundamentals and computational thinking, will pivot to a new, two-pronged approach in April 2021 that includes the AspireIT Toolkit and the AspireIT Impact Award. This approach replaces a former application and funding model while utilizing and leveraging lessons learned to date.
- The AspireIT Impact Award, launching April 2021, elevates the core values and spirit of NCWIT AspireIT, recognizing Aspirations in Computing Community members for their incredible efforts to build and creatively offer near-peer, hands-on computing opportunities while ultimately encouraging K-12 girls to contribute their unique perspectives and ideas to future innovations.
- The AspireIT Toolkit, launching Fall 2021, provides formal and informal educators with guidance on how to create and deliver more effective hands-on learning experiences in computing that incorporates near-peer mentorship.
