The Research & Innovation in Computing Education (RICE) Laboratory

At the RICE Lab at the University of Nebraska, our mission is to investigate computing education to improve both teaching and learning through (1) rigorous disciplined-based educational research, and (2) innovations of tools, course materials, techniques, and outreach activities.  Our secondary mission is to promote and advocate for CS education including broader participation from under-represented groups and minorities, development of K-12 CS curricular standards, and engagement and professional development of CS teachers and educators.

The founding co-directors of the RICE lab are Professors Leen-Kiat Soh and Steve Cooper
