Are You Ready for Computer Science Education Week?

I’m a big fan of CSEdWeek (Computer Science Education Week) and in the past I have done school visits and hosted field trips at Microsoft offices during the week. I don’t have anything planned this year though which is pretty disappointing. I’m thinking about ways to change that and am open to suggestions. What about you? Do you have plans for CSEd Week?

Do you know how you will be celebrating CSEdWeek?

Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) (December 9-15, 2012) is a weeklong celebration when thousands of people celebrate computer science education. The week focuses on the need to build strong computer science education programs in schools to ensure that the nation has the skilled workforce it will need to develop future solutions. CSEdWeek is held each year during the second week in December in honor of Grace Murray Hopper, an outstanding pioneer in computer science, who was born on December 9, 1906.
