interested in the Linux®
operating system, Free
& Open Source software
and other related topics — both technical and non-technical.
Our goals are to advocate the use of Linux and Open Source,
to educate the community on these software alternatives, and
to support and provide a social network for local
LUGOD holds regular meetings

The Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education (The C-STEM Center)|
Professor Harry H. Cheng
Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, UC Davis
"Computing, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics",
is a UC Approved Educational Preparation Program for Undergraduate
Admission for all
University of California
campuses. Participation in the C-STEM program
is recognized in the UC admissions process as achievements that have
explicitly prepared students for college and career.
UC Davis recently launched
a new national program for school districts across the country that
will make it easier for students to have computer science educations
starting in first grade. This new curriculum provides students with
a full first-grade-to-high-school curriculum that includes mathematics
from the Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education at UC Davis
(the C-STEM Center).
About the Speaker
Dr. Harry Cheng
is a professor at UC Davis'
Department of Mechanical and
Aerospace Engineering, and is founder and director of the
C-STEM Center. In 2006, he found that few students in his freshman
computer programming course had prior experience in the subject.
Inspired to increase exposure to computing in K-12 classrooms, Cheng saw a
larger opportunity to transform how students from elementary school to
college learn computing, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (C-STEM).
