The United States House of Representatives has declared the week of Grace Murray Hopper’s birthday as Computer Science Education Week. Given how little Congress can agree on these days, that’s a big deal!
The idea behind CSEdWeek is to spend some time reflecting on and celebrating existing K-12 computing programs while dreaming up new ways to support kids’ CS learning.
UW CSE will be hosting a programming competition for high school students on Saturday – more information here. We’ll also be sending speakers to local schools.
