Constellations Pivots to Research Focus in Year Three to Evaluate Program and Teacher Success
Since 2018, the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech has taken a hands-on approach through the Computing Equity Project to teach computer science and offer professional development opportunities to students and teachers in Atlanta Public Schools (APS).
With Covid-19 forcing most learning to occur online this academic year, Constellations is pivoting to ensure that students and teachers are still supported through online coaching sessions and workshops, while placing more emphasis on conducting research on the program’s success so far.

A @GeorgiaTech experiment trained a robot to seemingly act out racist behavior, to prove bias can exist in #AI. @MatthewGombolay opens up his lab to show where research can help address tough social issues. https://t.co/21F7IV0vbH pic.twitter.com/P3GD29lth1
