Glad to share our piece published by the STELAR – NSF ITEST Community at Education Development Center spotlighting one of our National Science Foundation-funded ITEST R&D grants with the University of Central Oklahoma focused on Computer Forensics.
The STEM CareerBuilder grant has two main goals:
1. Explore strategic government-university-industry partnerships
2. Study how technology-enriched interventions can encourage and support high school girls with their pursuit of STEM education and careers, especially in the Computer Forensics area.
The need for CF professionals is becoming a national priority due to an increased reliance on technology tools leading to critical data and security breaches, hacking, and cyber crime that are driving up the complexity and costs to maintain the functionality and privacy of these systems. Solving modern day cyber crimes requires specialized skills as well as competencies valued by employers (e.g., data analytics, critical thinking, and problem solving).
