Google Grants Help Boost Computer Science Education

Boise State is teaming up with Internet megastar Google to attract and retain students interested in computer science. While the field is one of the fastest growing on campuses across the country, retention has not kept pace with enrollment.

Faculty in Boise State’s Department of Computer Science have been awarded two grants toward this goal. Jim Conrad received a $5,000 Google Computer Science Engagement award, while Amit Jain will collaborate with Alark Joshi, Marissa Schmidt and department chair Tim Andersen on a $24,000 Google Computer Science for High School (CS4HS) award.
