November 27, 2012: Computer Science Education Fuels the Future!
Tuesday, November 27, 2012
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek), December 9 - 15, 2012, offers a tremendous opportunity to raise awareness about the impact of computing and the critical need for computer science (CS) education. CSEdWeek is a way to inspire students and colleagues about CS education, to employ new and better ways to engage them, and to connect with the broader community about the need for and value of CS education.
Last year, CSEdWeek was a huge success with more than 3,000 pledges of support and over 550 events and activities around the world. The response to CSEdWeek was incredible and the involvement doubled in just one year! The goal is for even more participation this year and we believe - with your support - we can prove that computer science does indeed Fuel the Future!
So get excited and get going! The best place to start is the CSEdWeek website. You can view the events and activities pledged previously and tap into the wide variety of resources available to showcase computing and CS education.It is easy to take the pledge; here's how it works:
- Go to csedweek.org
- Click on "Sign the Pledge"
- Enter the information requested and click "submit"
- Choose to "Host an event" or "Carry out an activity" (or both!)
- Provide the event or activity details, click "submit" and you have pledged!
Then encourage students, colleagues, friends and family to "Sign the Pledge" to participate in CSEdWeek and use the resources available on the CSEdWeek website - including the Event Planning Toolkit - to craft an event or activity.
