Betty’s Brain is an open-ended learning environment that helps students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills and strategies as well as knowledge about key science concepts and systems, such as ecology, climate change and human body thermoregulation, using a learning-by-teaching approach.


The Collaborative, Computational STEM (C2STEM) learning environment combines visual programming with domain specific modeling languages (DSMLs) to promote discipline-specific (e.g., Physics, Marine Biology) computational modeling, while providing synergistic learning of discipline-specific and CS (CT) concepts and practices.
