The Computer Science Department Celebrates Computer Science Education Week


Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek)- December 9-15, is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science. Originally conceived by the Computing in the Core coalition, Code.org is producing CSEdWeek for the first time this year, held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).

As part of CSE week, Code.org, a CSE non-profit offered a challenge to schools across the nation to teach 1 hour of coding to 10 million students. Winthrop faculty and students are participating :

• Sullivan Middle School : Chlotia Garrison, Marguerite Doman, and CS student Noah Weber attended a panel to talk about CS careers. Noah has been helping to tutor the Computer Science Academy at Sullivan Middle School this past semester

• Fort Mill High School is participating in the Hour of Code and in CSE week. Part of their activities will include a series of assemblies where Steve Dannelly and DIFD students Edward Granger, Patrick Rhead, Jesse Dotson and CS student Noah Weber will talk to the high school students.
