We are a group of experienced educators who are enthusiastic about teaching youth STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading & Writing, Engineering, Art and Math).
- offering the highest-quality education and learning environment
- promoting innovation and facilitate immersive learning experiences
- advocating leadership, teamwork and critical thinking skills throughout all the curricular activities
We nurture technology-infused experiences that take our students beyond simple application of tools to creative experimentation and innovation in an immersive learning environment.
Dr. Brian Dean
Dr. Dean received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in computer science from MIT. His research interests are quite broad, encompassing most of algorithmic computer science and its applications. Dr. Dean is also interested in computer science education, particularly at the high-school level. He currently directs the Applied Algorithms Group in the School of Computing at Clemson. His research was most recently supported by an NSF CAREER award. He also directs an NSF-funded research experiences for undergraduates (REU) program in data-intensive computing.
Dr. Dean is the director of the USA Computing Olympiad, a program that contributes to computer science education at the high-school level via algorithmic programming competitions and on-line training materials. Each summer the USACO invites the top two dozen high-school students in the country to an intensive summer “training camp” at Clemson University, from which a team of 4 is selected to represent the USA at the International Olympiad in Informatics, the most prestigious international algorithmic programming contest at the high-school level.
