Welcome to our latest edition of #STEMCTEFridays! This is a special edition as we are highlighting the upcoming Computer Science Education Week (December 7-13).

Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual call to action to inspire K-12 students to learn computer science, advocate for equity in computer science education, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the field.

This year’s theme, as part of the #CSforGood movement, is #CSForSocialJustice. Without access to computer science and STEM courses, underrepresented students have limited opportunities and aspirations to develop computing knowledge.

Why is Computer Science Education Important for All Students?:
