CSEdWeek – Computer Science Education Week – December 9-15 2012

In 2010, with leadership from Congressman Vernon Ehlers and Congressman Jared Polis, the US House of Representatives endorsed the week of Grace Hopper’s birthday (December 9, 1906) as Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) to recognize the critical role of computing in today’s society and the imperative to bolster computer science education at all levels.  UW CSE is an active participant!

  • Join us for an Open House on Saturday December 8 from 1:00-3:30.  Participate in hands-on activities and research lab visits to find out what computer science is all about! UW Computer Science & Engineering students, faculty and academic advisors along with representatives from local technology companies will introduce you to the broad range of problems computer science can address.  (250 students are already registered as of today!)
  • Participate in the UW/TEALS Programming Competition on Saturday December 15 from 8:30-2:30.  Can you code? Do you want to build up your programming skills? Come discover the fun of speed and accuracy programming by competing! Students compete in teams of 1-3 members. Each team brings 1 computer (1 mouse, 1 monitor, 1 keyboard max) with the team’s choice of development tools (IDE/compiler/programming language) already installed. Students get three hours to complete as many of the supplied programming problems as they can. In the mean time, teachers will have their monthly CSTA meeting.
