NC State, NSF Project to Boost Computer Science Knowledge Through Gaming
November 9, 2011
North Carolina State University researchers are launching a project to develop a video game that will help improve computer science knowledge in middle-school students--and contribute to a better educated workforce in the future. The game, which is being developed under a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation, could be used nationally if it proves successful.
