Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program designed to engage students of all ages in computer science. It is observed each year, in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906). This year, CSEdWeek is December 7-13, 2015.
What started as a grassroots movement and then inaugurated by Congress in 2009, CSEdWeek has quickly grown with over 100,000 CS Ed Week events planned around the world. There are many ways to participate and to bring computing to others, such as hosting students in your research lab, visiting a high school class to share your stories with students, or by linking up with a community organization such as the Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts, to help students learn about computing.
Other opportunities on the national level include:
The National Science Foundation‘s CS Bits & Bytes has been relaunched. CS Bits & Bytes was originally rolled out in December 2011 in support of Computer Science Education Week and was developed to make computer science more accessible to educators and learners. Each issue of CS Bits & Bytes highlights innovative computer science research, often at the intersection with other disciplines, and includes profiles of the individuals who do this exciting work, links for further exploration, and interactive activities. It will be published every other week. You can see the existing archive here.
