CSEd Week! Free Lesson plans?! CoderZ and the Dottie Rose Foundation are Making it Awesome!

Computer Science Education Week 2021

Computer Science Education Week (of CSEd Week if you’re cool) is an annual call to action to inspire K-12 students to learn computer science, advocate for equity, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the field!

Here at CoderZ, we advocate and support all of those things. So when Dr. Sharon Jones of the Dottie Rose Foundation came knocking, we answered!

Together with school districts in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, we are supporting Dr. Jones in creating her amazing programming for Computer Science Education Week and we are bringing it to you! This marks the beginning of the Computer Science Education Week series with materials, ideas, and radical ways to bring computer science to all students.

Teach #CSEverywhere during CSEd Week

The CSEdWeek theme this year highlights the impact that computer science is making everywhere & the relationship that computer science has to different subjects, industries, career paths, & our everyday lives.

To kick off the week, we will be sharing resources here for teachers to access and use in their classrooms. The best part? They don’t actually need computers to work!

All lessons have been created by the Dottie Rose Foundation and Dr. Sharon Jones! Enjoy and give her a shout-out on social media!
