Engaging Hispanic/Latino(a) Youth in Computer Science: An Outreach Project Experience Report

Learning Computer Science through the Lens of Culture and Society is an outreach project that seeks to increase the participation of Hispanic/Latino(a) high school students in computer science. This project provided a one-week summer workshop that introduced high school students to computer science through hands-on activities involving computational thinking, Alice 3D animation, Android app development, and soft skills. Various activities of the workshop shared the theme of culture and society. This paper describes the motivations behind our project, the design of our workshop, and our evaluation results.
