Koch, M., & Gorges, T. (2008 February). Scaling Build IT. Presented at NSF’s ITEST PI Meeting, Washington, DC.
This paper outlines the need for sustainable, scalable afterschool computer science programs targeting girls and describes the
development of one such curriculum. Evaluation research on girls’ learning of computer science and on the capacity of afterschool staff
and organizations to provide computer science programming leads to our description of a research-based approach to sustaining and scaling the program nationally—an approach that other programs might use to expand their reach and impact.
