Event description

Description

Come learn more about a new Hive Research Lab initiative to promote youth pathways in Computer Science and Digital Making!

Starting in the fall, HRL will lead a year-long research-practice partnership project to investigate and strengthen our impact as brokers of future learning opportunities to youth. The plan for this CS-Paths initiative is to design and test with organizational partners a set of “brokering interventions” that promote deep and extended learning experiences around CS and digital making for teens.

We hope to identify a small cohort of organizational partners who may be interested in participating in one or both of the following ways:

  1. As CS-Paths Design Partners, who will collaborate with HRL on the design, testing and iteration of brokering interventions. Initiative partners will receive a modest stipend to cover participation time, as well as ongoing research support through the evaluation of interventions that come out of the initiative.
  2. As CS-Paths Working Group Partners, who will attend regular working group sessions to discuss and reflect on the practice of brokering, as well as hear about the ongoing work of the initiative. Members of the working group will gain a deeper understanding of ways to enhance their brokering practices in their respective organizations.

During this info session, more details on the initiative will be shared, as well as the process for joining. This initiative is open to any NYC-based organization that offers computer science and digital making out-of-school programming to teens.

Light refreshments will be provided.
