Press Release 09-234 - Video
Webcast--Computer Science Education Week

The United States' leadership in computer science and information technologies may be threatened as other countries begin to develop a crucial component missing from America's science pipeline--a comprehensive curriculum in computer science at the K-12 level. In response to this, Congress has declared December 6-12, 2009, as Computer Science Education Week. Joining this webcast to discuss the week and why computer science education needs extra attention right now are Jan Cuny, Program Director at NSF, Cameron Wilson of the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM), Maggie Johnson, Director of Education and University Relations for Google Inc., and Jane Margolis, a UCLA researcher who is working in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
