This session will inform about middle and high school computer science curricula that uses a problem-based culturally authentic practices framework. The curricula were sponsored by the National Science Foundation and developed by Georgia Tech researchers and Georgia CS classroom teachers. Specific examples of student products will be shared by classroom teachers. The curricula includes the integration of music and gaming around critical topics that students select and advocate, and the research has shown significant improvement in student cognitive engagement and intention to persist.
