Social Justice and CS Education Week

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.

As part of the #CSforGood movement, we decided to shine a light on how Computer Science can serve as a catalyst for social justice. #CSforSocialJustice

Without access to rigorous computer science and STEM courses, underrepresented students have limited opportunities and aspirations to develop computing knowledge.

Teach how Computer Science can be a tool for social justice
