Today, January 30th, the White House announced plans to bring computer science to every student in the United States. The “Computer Science for All” initiative proposes $4 billion in funding and additional support for training teachers to bring computer science to students.
The #CSforAll Initiative will also provide a set of policy efforts to help every student in public school learn computer science with a focus on girls and “underrepresented students of color.”
Our February 2016 Engage Community theme is Life and Career Readiness. As educators, how do you empower girls and students of color to excel in computer science and other careers? How do you make sure these students are ready to make an impact on society? What are the challenges and roadblocks of teaching Computer Science to students?
What are resources that can inspire and enrich this initiative?
