What Is Computer Science Education Week?
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to get interested in computer science (CS). Held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906), CSEd Week will be celebrated December 9-15, 2019.
Admiral Hopper was an American computer scientist. Ahead of her time, she was one of the first programmers in the history of computers, and best known for programming the Harvard Mark I computer. She was a pioneer of computer programming and her belief was that programming languages should be as easily understood as English. She was highly influential on the development of one of the first programming languages called COBOL.
Celebrate CSEdWeek with Constellations
To celebrate the 10th annual CSEdWeek, the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing (Constellations) will be assisting our partner schools with organizing CS carnivals during the week of December 9-15. By combining unplugged activities, demonstrations, and more, the carnivals aim to excite students with engaging activities that will increase their interest in computer science. The carnivals will be open to any student at the organizing school, allowing students who are not currently engaging in computer science coursework the opportunity to learn more about computing and the exciting opportunities that this field possesses.
If you are interested in volunteering at one of our CS Carnivals, please fill out this form.
