NC Computing Education Virtual Summit

The Summit, organized by the CS4NC ECEP working group, is part of the statewide effort to advance Computing Education and Computer Science for All in North Carolina.  With the formal adoption of the NC K-12 Computer Science Standards, we are in a unique position to connect and leverage efforts into a statewide initiative to bring computer science education to every student in North Carolina.

This free, invitation-only event is an opportunity to join a cross-sector community of innovative leaders to inform the state plan for implementing the recently adopted K-12 Computer Science Education Standards throughout NC. Seats are limited in order to facilitate a high level conversation.

The NC Computing Education Summit is led by the CS4NC ECEP working group, the North Carolina chapter of the Expanding Computing Education Pathways Alliance (a consortium of states taking the lead to innovate with coordinated statewide computing education initiatives). Started in 2016, CS4NC is a collective from across NC with representatives from the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at NC State’s College of Education, the NC Department of Public Instruction, the NC State Department of Computer Science, the UNC-Charlotte College of Computing and Informatics, the NC School of Science and Math, and the Computer Science Teachers Association.  CS4NC is focused on ensuring that educational opportunities in CS are designed to be equitable and inclusive, especially for diverse populations who have historically lacked access to computer science education including students of color, students with disabilities, and students in communities with low access to technology.

Sponsored in part by the Expanding Computing Education Pathways Alliance.
