Mentoring for Connections to Computing (MC2)





The University of Cincinnati (UC) aims to provide urban high school students with exposure to computing-related problem-solving activities and undergraduate mentors. The undergraduates have had significant co-operative education experience and are trained to mentor youth.  As part of the Computer Science Investigations (CSI:Cincinnati) project, undergraduate mentors develop innovative lessons and activities about computing topics, conduct and assist in lesson delivery, and make their lessons available in a web-based repository.


Another major activity of the grant is to offer the UC/CATC Digital Arts Workshop, where urban high school students use computers to create an original, digital artwork based on the Harlem Renaissance movement.  The students tour UC’s campus and take their own photos of people and architecture to use in their art work.
