There is a global push in computer science however, we need to know more about the impact of exposing gifted and talented elementary students to computer science. There is a gap in the literature about elementary students’ attitudes and perceptions of computer science and even fewer studies about GT students. What happens to student interest in computer science when first through sixth grade GT students participate in computer science activities? This Action Research conducted in a GT classroom explores the effects of offering computer science activities on students' attitudes and interests in future computer science activities and careers. Learn more about research being conducted in gifted education in this short research presentation.
