Minorities Inspiring Minorities in Computer Science
Prof. Mark Finlayson, Labiba Jahan, W. Victor. H. Yarlott
Dr. Masoud Sadjadi
This is a software engineering project, lead by Mark Finlayson. Based off research showing that a lack of role models contributes to decreased participation from underrepresented groups, an NSF-funded series of workshops will be held at Title 1 Miami Dade public schools that will expose students to stories of minorities and women role models in computer science. A web application is being requested to assist with conducting the activities of the workshop and collecting anonymized usage date to advance improvement to the workshops and research into the issue.
