Unfortunately, the SIGSCE (the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education) 2020 conference was cancelled.
However, Alex Lishinski prepared a pre-precorded, virtual version of our lightning talk presentation, Accruing Interest: What experiences contribute to students developing a sustained interest in computer science over time?

Communities of Practice Communities of practice (CoPs) are groups of people who share a common interest and participate in activities that promote learning.
The Making Data Science Count research group has two presentations at the upcoming TN STEM Education Research Conference:
Rosenberg, J. M.,& Lishinski, A. (January, 2020). Measuring what matters in-the-moment: An experience sampling approach to understanding the development of interest in computer science.
A blog post on [Using R With 7th-Grade Science Students[(https://joshuamrosenberg.com/post/2019/11/13/using-r-with-7th-grade-science-students/)] was recently highlighted in the widely-read data visualization blog Flowing Data. A link to the post is here.
