NYC Schools Celebrate Computer Science Education Week
Computer Science Education Week (#CSEdWeek), December 5 - 11 2016, is an annual effort dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science. In New York City, schools are engaging their students in exciting computer science activities and lessons, including an Hour of Code and/or a Hackathon.
As a key part of the DOE's vision of Equity and Excellence for All, the Computer Science for All (#CSForAll) initiative will ensure that by 2025, every student receives computer science education in elementary, middle, and high school. Over the next 10 years, the DOE will train nearly 5,000 teachers who will bring innovative computer science instruction to the City’s 1.1 million public school students.
