If you’ve been thinking about submitting a session proposal for the WeTeach_CS Summit 2017, then now’s the time to act! The submissions window for proposals will close on March 31, 2017.

2016’s inaugural WeTeach_CS Summit was a great success and much of the credit has to go to the amazing group of presenters, many of them CS teachers just like you, who shared their CS education knowledge and experience with their fellow attendees.
