Learning Computer Science through the Lens of Culture and Society, (LCS)2, is a project that seeks to increase the participation of Hispanic/Latino(a) high school students in computer science and encourage these students to explore higher education and careers in computer science. 

To achieve its goals, the project involves a one-week workshop for high school students and a two-day workshop for high school STEM teachers in the Inland Empire. The workshops will involve computing activities that are closely tied to societal and cultural issues.  These workshops will take place at Crafton Hills College during summer 2012.

Our project partners include Redlands East Valley High SchoolRedlands High SchoolSan Bernardino High School, and Yucaipa High School.
