Honors: Andreas Stefik

Andreas Stefik (Computer Science) was recognized as a White House Champion of Change for Computer Science Education. Stefik is among nine recipients who will be honored at a Jan. 26 event in Washington, D.C. Stefik is the inventor of Quorum, the first evidence-oriented programming language. The design of Quorum is based on rigorous empirical data from experiments on human behavior. With grants from the National Science Foundation, Stefik also established the first national educational infrastructure for blind or visually impaired students to learn computer science — a model being used in nearly 20 states and overseas, including in Clark County and the United Kingdom.
