NMSI Receives $4 Million to Expand CS in Texas

For the second year in a row, NMSI is receiving a $4 million Early Phase grant as part of the Education, Innovation and Research grant program at the U.S. Department of Education. This year’s award will support our Lonestar CS project to expand and evaluate our computer science work in Texas.
 
This grant is also a game-changer for NMSI’s CS work. The funding will allow us to support 50 additional schools across Texas in implementing high-quality training and support. With this data-driven approach, we will have the opportunity to step up as a leader in CS education nationally and continue to work with partner organizations and districts across the country.
 
With the support of the American Institutes of Research, we also can rigorously evaluate our program, which will allow us to learn, iterate and grow in our effort to serve students furthest from opportunity.
 
These large projects are not the work of a single visionary, but rather a collaboration of many to create a cohesive proposal and project that will ultimately impact students, teachers and communities. We can’t wait to get started!
