Professor Alexander Repenning has been selected as an Electronic Arts Scholar in recognition of his research introducing K-12 students in the US, Europe and Asia to computer science through educational game design using the AgentSheets environment. The scholarship includes an all expense paid participation at the "Microsoft Academic Days on Game Development in Computer Science Education" Conference (GDCSE'08), to be held February 28 - March 3, 2008. GDCSE'08 is a focal point for academic efforts using computer and console games within the Computer Science curriculum.

Jointly sponsored by Microsoft Research and Electronic Arts and held in cooperation with the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE), the conference is targeted at both computer science educators and researchers, promoting new efforts in the creation and management of courses and curriculum using game development. The conference, now in its third year, will be held aboard the Celebrity Century cruise ship, departing from and returning to Miami, Florida with port calls in Key West and Cozumel, Mexico. GDCSE'08 will include talks by invited speakers, presentation of peer-reviewed papers, hands-on tutorials and birds-of-a-feather meetings focusing on a range of topics related to the use of games in computer science education. Researchers and educators were invited to share insights and cutting-edge results relating to the use of games and game technologies in both formal and informal educational contexts.
