Project {FUTURE}

Welcome to the Official Project {FUTURE} website, where you can learn about our team, our projects, our partners, and more! 

Project {FUTURE} is a 5 year, $5 million research and outreach collaboration between Sacred Heart University, Marquette University and our neighboring schools to promote Computer Science learing opportunities in grades K-5.

The Latest: Project FUTURE Collaborative Summer Institute

Project FUTURE gathered our Project Future Collaborative teachers at Sacred Heart University's beautiful West Campus or a week-long session. Teacher PLCs refined their CS-integrated units and collaborated with our special guests from Marquette University to co-develop novel custom digital tools to support their CS-integrated units. What an amazing week! We are so glad that our CT-based teachers got a chance to collaborate in person and in real time with our WI-based Development Team. 

Stay tuned for releases of those digital tools. Publication of Project FUTURE units is expected for Fall of 2024 after implementation and testing this academic year!
