It’s time to pledge your involvement in CSEdWeek 2012. There’s a particular push this year to pledge activities even if they don’t occur during the week itself. Doing something the week before or week after (or whenever fits best into your academic year calendar) is great, as long as it gets pledged and helps with the report back to the funders/sponsors.
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.
