Sally Lemkemeier

Princeton University
Recent CS Graduate, CS Education Researcher
Sally has researched Computer Science Education extensively while earning her CS degree. She is especially interested in making CS more accessible to women and minority groups, and increasing exposure to CS in rural and low-income schools. She has written two papers with the help of her advisor, Professor Brian Kernighan: "Thinking Outside the Black Box: Exploring Computer Science Education Practices" explores using CS pedagogical strategies to make CS more approachable for all students; "Educating Educators: Training Teachers to Teach Computer Science" proposes a professional development curriculum to train current high school teachers of other subjects to teach computer science -- this curriculum implements a dual approach that integrates both coding skills and pedagogical strategies specific to Computer Science.
