    Join us in celebrating the fifth annual Computer Science Education Week (CSEDWeek) December 8-14, 2014.

    CSEdWeek is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science. Conceived by the Computing in the Core coalition and produced this year by Code.org, it commemorates computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper’s birthday. Supported by the U.S. Congress, CSEdWeek partners also include Microsoft, Google, Intel, and many other organizations.

    For the second year in a row, Hour of Code is the theme of Computer Science Education Week. Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in more than 180 countries. Designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics, Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science that nurtures problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity to provide a solid foundation for success in any 21st century career path.
