Wrapup of CSEdWeek
Impressive growth of CSEdWeek!
We also saw some major national coverage of CSEdWeek this year. The White House blog featured CSEdWeek as story of the week and tweeted a celebratory message in binary! The US Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, highlighted CSEdWeek on his blog. And our major corporate partners spread the word with Microsofts CTO , Googles Director of Education , and SASs CEO highlighting computer science education week to their employees, customers, and the public at large. CSEdWeek received almost 1700 pledges of support from 45 states in the US in addition to DC, Guam and Puerto Rico and 34 other countries. 45% of the pledges came from Massachusetts and California, while the highest pledging cities included Marlborough and Shrewsbury, Massachusetts and Irvine, California. Over 33% of the support pledges came from K-12 students, 17% from college students, and 15% from K-12 teachers. These statistics indicate that we achieved our goal of engaging students and teachers as well as the computing community around the world.
