National Computer Science Education Week


December 6-12, 2009 is the inaugural National Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek). The U.S. House of Representatives designated this week to raise awareness of computer science as a distinct discipline. It is meant to acknowledge the transformative role of computing in our nation and bolster computer science at all education levels. The Association for Computer Machinery (ACM) leads this effort along with the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT), and the Computing Research Association (CRA); with the strong support of Google, Intel, and Microsoft.
