Participate in computer science events, which run from Dec. 9-15

computer-science-education-weekComputer Science Education Week begins today, and the week is full of resources and events to help curriculum directors and educators integrate and implement computer science lessons.

As of Dec. 6, 167 countries had planned 33,247 events for 4.5 million students–and those numbers definitely increased over the weekend.

Educators and stakeholders can take a number of steps to support Computer Science Education Week and broader nationwide initiatives.

During Computer Science Education Week, stakeholders and advocates can voice their support for K-12 computer science by advocating for computer science education. The Computer Science Education Act, introduced in the House of Representatives, and the Computer Science Education and Jobs Act, introduced in the Senate, advocate for support of computer science education and note its importance to the U.S. economy.
