Schools Hosting a CSEdWeek Event
What is CSEdWeek?
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual, nationwide event that started in 2009 to raise awareness about the need for computer science education for all learners and highlight its importance in 21st-century careers. This year it’s celebrated the week of December 9.
Why host a CSEdWeek event?
Because it’s fun AND easy to do! Hosting an event can spark student interest in computer science, demonstrate how engaging the content can be, and help schools determine how to start making computer science part of their students’ education.
Is training provided?
