What to Expect During CSEdWeek 2022


CSEdWeek 2022, Dec. 5-11, is right around the corner. The CSEdWeek theme this year highlights the progress that has occurred in computer science education over the past decade. There have been many great advancements in making CS education more equitable and accessible for all learners.


This year, we aim to celebrate our progress while keeping our eye on the advancements we still need to make so that every student has an equal opportunity to learn computer science.
