NCWIT Aspirations in Computing is now accepting applications for the 2018 High School Student Award and Computing Educator Affiliate Award. We know there are some great CS educators all across Texas, so we’d really love to see some familiar names when the awards are announced! We’re also quite certain that our WeTeach_CS teachers know some impressive and inspiring young women whose interest in computing and technology deserves to be recognized.
