Austin, Texas — October 9, 2018

From October 8–11, 2018, the nationwide community of computer science educators, researchers, activists, and supporters will convene at the 2018 CSforALL Summit to celebrate progress and announce more than 200 new commitments to reach the goal of rigorous, inclusive, and sustainable computer science education for all US students, both in and out of school.

UTeach Computer Science and the UTeach Institute are proud to announce their commitments for the 2018–2019 school year. UTeach CS will:

  • Create a project-based (PBL) curriculum for the AP CS A course, increasing interest and engagement for non-traditional students in CS, especially in girls and underrepresented minorities.
  • Expand the reach of the project-based UTeach CS Principles curriculum by providing professional development for 200 teachers in the spring and summer of 2019, through both online and in-person courses.
  • Collaborate with the UChicago STEM Center and AccessCSforAll to incorporate Universal Learning Design recommendations into the UTeach CS Principles 2019 course, improving accessibility for students with cognitive and learning disabilities. 

The CSforAll Summit is organized by CSforALL, a collaborative community of more than 550 organizations, and the national hub for the Computer Science for All movement. Details at www.csforall.org.
