Members of the CS10K Community,
I am pleased (really, really pleased that is) to let you know that today President Obama announced a new initiative, called CS for All, that aims to give all U.S. students the chance to learn computer science (CS) in school! Watch the launch from the Computer Science for All webpage.
It calls for new funding—$4 billion in his forthcoming budget—and includes a $120 million commitment from already existing funding at NSF. It specifically calls out CS10K!! It also mentions the great work of many private organizations and partners. View the Computer Science for All webpage and see the Fact Sheet.
This has gotten tons of press already this morning. CS Ed has arrived!!!
This milestone is due, in large part, to the amazing community of teachers, faculty, and researchers who have put so much of their time and energy into making ECS and CSP courses and course materials accessible and engaging for everyone.
Thank you for all that you’ve done!!!
