From Dec 4 - 10, 2011, the USA is recognizing the third annual Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek).
Here's a chance to eliminate misperceptions about CS and computing careers and increase awareness about all the opportunities understanding computing enables.Computer careers are growing. Read what you can do this week as a student, teacher, parent or as a citizen concerned about the health and relevance of your community's K-12 educational resources,
at: Official Google Blog: Say yes to CS during CSEdWeek. The Computer Science Teachers Association also has some free resources on its web site: www.csta.acm.org.
See state-by-state analysis of K-12 curricula, and through Sunday December 11, 2011, you'll find a sample letter on our site, if you wish to advocate for improvements.
If you've got a Dot Diva in your family (and we hope you do), watch out! The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) will tell you Why It Matters. Be sure to read what the NCWIT Academic Alliance is doing to increase the number of women participating in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) research and education at all levels.
