As outlined in Governor Wolf’s PASmart initiative, most good paying jobs in Pennsylvania, and across the country, over the next decade will require some form of education or training in the fields of Computer Science (CS) and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). To help meet this demand, Pennsylvania, under the leadership of Governor Wolf and Acting Secretary of Education Ortega, is working to create and expand access to computer science learning for all.

The CSforALL-PA Summit offers educators, leaders, and stakeholders the opportunity to share, discuss, and collaboratively develop tools, resources, and practices for CS learning experiences. The Summit specifically focuses on equitably serving historically under-served populations including students with disabilities, English Learners, and females. The theme for 2021, CS Celebrations, honors how educators across the commonwealth created, adapted, and expanded CS learning opportunities throughout a year of change.

Objectives

Participants will:

  • Identify goals and initiatives for CS education in Pennsylvania, set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education
  • Explore strategies for recruiting, engaging, and retaining students in CS, especially students in identified underrepresented populations
  • Identify and engage with foundational CS concepts and practices through activities designed for K-12 students
