AISL Pathways: The Role of Story in Games to Teach Computer Science Concepts to Middle School Girls

The goal of this project is to help girls see computer science as fundamentally a way of thinking and solving problems, and to develop their ability to engage in these forms of thinking and problem-solving through engaging them in meaningful, story-driven experiences that require them to think like computer scientists. By use of game play girls will learn about computer science concepts in an engaging way.
