Computer Science Education Week
Computer Science Education Week is a great opportunity to reflect on our community's CS Ed efforts. We want our audience and yours to learn more about the need for tech talent and the importance of computer science in preparing that talent.
Meet Cassie. Cassie is a Kansas City native and friend of the KC Tech Council, pictured below! She is passionate about computer science education and is visiting local tech organizations to help them educate their audience during #CSEdWeekKC with social content.

A NOTE FROM CASSIE
My name is Cassie. Kansas City is my home and computer science is my passion. That's why CS Ed Week is my favorite holiday, and I look forward to celebrating it with you!
The demand for computer science skills is growing twice as fast as the supply, and it's important that leading organizations are part of the solution. My friends at the KC Tech Council are sending me to local tech companies to help increase awareness of the skills gap, encourage folks to support computer science education, and spread the word about opportunities available here. Let's share the stories of tech careers in Kansas City!
Monday, December 3
Share a story from your office about how computer science education has impacted an employee.
Tuesday, December 4
Explain how your organization or the employees support computer science education.
Wednesday, December 5
Thursday, December 6
