Keynote address: WeTeach_CS and You Can Too!

Computer science jobs are the #1 source of new wages in the U.S., but the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that there will be 1 million open jobs in computing by 2024 due to a lack of qualified U.S. candidates. While computer science enrollment has grown significantly in Texas, only 3% of high school students currently complete a CS course, and most courses fail to represent the diversity of students in the state. If your district is looking to build a diverse K–12 Computer Science Pathway, this presentation is just for you. We will focus on resources for improving the CS pipeline in your school/district from elementary to high school and professional development opportunities that will help your school train and certify more CS teachers.
