It’s already November and you know what that means? Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10, 2017) is just one month away! So, now’s the time to sign up and plan an Hour of Code even for your school or community.
Code.org, partnership with the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), is conducting a census of CS offerings at schools across the USA and we want to make sure Texas is well represented. Please take a few minutes to tell Code.org about your school. This information will be used to assess needs and help expand CS offerings.
The WeTeach_CS Program at UT Austin’s Center for STEM Education will be accepting applications for Computer Science Collaboratives in Texas beginning December 7, 2016. Proposals are due January 9, 2017.
Share the achievements of any teacher—including your own—student, school, administrator, counselor, or organization, etc. (you get the idea), who has had a positive impact on Computer Science education in your community with Code.org and you could be recognized at the Computer Science Education Week 2017 kickoff event in Palo Alto, CA on December 4th!
UT Austin’s College of Education marks an important milestone for the WeTeach_CS program in their Texas Education Magazine article, Expanding Computer Science Education in Texas.
