Abstract

I will present perspectives on the current crisis in computer science education and discuss attempts being made to address the situation. I will also present an overview of my own experiences in creating a new undergraduate computer science program at Bryn Mawr College. I will conclude with an introduction to my current work as a member of the Institute for Personal Robots in Education (IPRE) that includes the use of robots in introductory computing courses.
