Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual call to action to inspire K-12 students to learn computer science, advocate for equity, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the field. Originally conceived by the Computing in the Core coalition, CSEdWeek is now organized by the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) as a grassroots campaign supported by 350 partners and 100,000 educators worldwide. In classrooms and communities across the nation, people of all ages can participate in events and activities ranging from Hour of Code sessions to workshops, hackathons, and virtual gatherings in support of making computing programs available and accessible for all students.
CSEdWeek is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906). This annual event was first recognized in 2010 when the 111th Congress passed House Resolution 1560. This year, it takes place December 6-12, with the theme #CSEverywhere. NCWIT is proud to be a founding partner in this movement for equity in computing.
