Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science.
CSEdWeek was launched and funded by ACM in 2009 and continues to be a community-based effort supported by 350 partners and 100,000 educators worldwide.
CSEdWeek is held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
Constellations is excited to celebrate this week with a variety of activities.
