University Computer Science departments from every Canadian province will celebrate National Computer Science Education Week on December 5-11, 2010. This week is planned in recognition of the transformative role of computing and the need to bolster computer science at all educational levels.
Activities range from a full-day computer science fair for high school students to workshops for middle-schools students to public laboratory tours.
Find out what is happening in a CS department near you and encourage your local schools to join in the celebration.
