    Happy Computer Science Education Week!

    Join us in celebrating the fourth annual Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) December 9-15, 2013.

    Computer Science Education Week raises awareness about the impact of computing, the csedweek14richness of computing careers, and the critical need for computer science education. CSEdWeek is also a call to action to inspire students and colleagues about CS education, to employ new and better strategies for engagement, and to connect with the broader community about the need for and value of CS education. First endorsed in 2010 by Congressmen Vernon Ehlers and Jared Polis, CSEdWeek commemorates the birthday in 1906 of CS Pioneer Grace Hopper.

    This year, Code.org is launching the Hour of Code as part of the annual CSEdWeek to encourage interest in the field and show that anyone can learn the basics. Watch the preview video now:
