NSF Joins In Commemorating Computer Science Education Week 2012
December 9th is the birthday of computing pioneer, Grace Hopper. In commemoration, her birthday every year marks Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) intended to spotlight the transformative role of computing and the need to bolster computer science at all educational levels. The National Science Foundation (NSF) is pleased to join in recognizing CSEdWeek 2012. "Computer Science--or more broadly information technology or computing--drives our economy, ensures global competitiveness, accelerates the pace of discovery and is crucial to achieve many of America's national and societal priorities," said Jan Cuny, NSF program manager for computer education and broadening participation.
