Peña awarded NSF Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Grant

Cultural Competence in Computing (3C) Fellow and Assistant Professor at Macalester College, Joslenne Peña, Ph.D., has been awarded an NSF Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Grant. Dr. Peña's project will create informal learning experiences for diverse groups of workforce professionals with little or no computational skills. Through community partnerships and outreach, the project seeks to recruit participants locally and hold workshop series at the Macalester College's DeWitt Wallace Library. The workshops seek to develop the skills and confidence of professionals who have been left out of the Computing community but have the desire to obtain computational skills. The project will provide opportunities for students to engage in all facets of research and expand the pipeline of groups in the CSforAll movement. At Macalester College, Dr. Peña is an Assistant Professor in Human-computer interaction, Computer science education.
