In celebration of Computer Science Education Week (@CSEdWeek), join mindSpark Learning, Couragion and Code.org at a free community event for educators, parents and kids on Wednesday, December 6, and learn more about computer science while exploring the role it will play in future careers. Participants will engage with facilitators who are experts in computer science, and how it can be implemented in learning environments, or at home, while delving into relevant topics like: Coding and robotics games and materials; Computer science skill development in schools, classrooms and at home; Problem-solving, logic and critical thinking skill development; Workforce development and career readiness; Possible career options. Who should attend this event? Novices and experts; Parents interested in computer science as a hobby or for the purpose of supporting their child’s interest; Educators looking to learn more about the benefits of computer science in schools or classrooms, or those seeking to take their computer science knowledge to the next level. At the end of the night, you will leave with actionable steps from mindSpark Learning staff and our partners that you can use to get your students more engaged with computer science, to teach your children about the value of exploring future careers and also to increase your personal knowledge of coding -- either for hobby, for work or for your classroom or home.   You can follow along on social media with #HourOfCode, @codeorg and @CSEdWeek for more information on this exciting week.
