Grand Challenge: Rural Reimagined Faculty Success Story with Computer Science


Over the fall semester of 2019, Dr. Eberle, Mr. Brown, and Mrs. Jennings incorporated the Grand Challenge into three sections of a capstone course for Computer Science majors through approaching real world problems with computer science.  Students found a Grand Challenge problem, created mockups of software products that would address the problem, and presented them. Dr. Eberle stated that he really “liked the fact that we were doing something for the community,” and he appreciates the Grand Challenge because it gave the students the opportunity to use their skills to solve real world problems in an exciting way.
