I was reminded today that Computer Science Education day is December 8th. Visit the official web site for information. It’s timed to coincide with Grace Hopper’s birthday (which is actually the Saturday but apparently a lot of schools are closed on Saturday.)
I’ve hearing from a number of schools that they are having special events, guest speakers, and other ways to bring some attention to Computer Science. I think it’s great. I can only hope that this idea continues to grow. If something is happening at your school please leave a comment about it so that others can get some ideas. Thanks!
