Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer
My idea about celebrating Computer Science Education Day on December 8th and with Daryll McDade's idea to celebrate Grace Hopper's Birthday seems to be catching on. I will be working with my colleagues at the Microsoft Faculty Advisory Board to help me organize activities that can be held that day for students. I'd like to have a poster contest of Grace Hopper's accomplishments along with an essay contest. I'm trying to get the Computer Science Teachers Association to support this idea as well. I'm going to create a web portal with dotnetnuke and the site is http://sws.lhps.org/computerscienceed On it I'd like to have the history of Grace Hopper along with contest activites across the US or international as well. If you happen to be fortunate enough to meet Grace Hopper, I'll have a guestbook on the site for you to write about your meeting with her. Now, here's where you come in! I'm looking for Corporate sponsors for this day that would donate speakers time to schools, cash donation for student prizes, any time of swag or support is most welcome. Please respond to this blog that you can help out or email me bscarbeau@lhps.org. Thanks. Posted on Thursday, April 20, 2006 7:48 AM Celebrate Computer Science Education | Back to top
