Now Know exposes young people to the wonderful field of computer science. We use seven strategies that are targeted for both males and females but also, based on research, have an effect of encouraging more females into computer science. Some of our strategies are unique, and some are common but fundamental.
We target students who are unfamiliar with computer science, and spark their interest in the field with various techniques based on the six strategies. We reach more than 250 students all over the world through:
- Introducing computer science in ‘advisor’ classes
- Teaching during education programs at MIT
