Professor Mihaela Sabin  with students at a table

Professor Mihaela Sabin teaches computing courses to students from the University of New Hampshire at Manchester. Sabin leads the Ecosystem Computing Challenge Partnership Model to Build Access to Relevant Computing Education for Underrepresented High School Students project, in which students will be challenged to help monitor, map and demonstrate understanding of New Hampshire's natural ecosystems. Using data produced by the NH EPSCoR Ecosystems & Society project, they will learn computational thinking and engage with more rigorous computing by developing their own mobile applications using App Inventor, a free and open-source programming language and platform. They also will have opportunities to meet and learn from computing professionals about computing careers and the thriving high-technology sector in the state.
