Boulder Computer Science Education (CSED) Working Committee

Boulder Computer Science Education Week celebrates its 5th year December 3-9, 2019, and we’d like your help to make this year’s CSED Week meaningful and accessible to all.

Boulder CSED Working Committee, Wednesday, October 9, 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. at Boulder Public Library, Boulder Creek Room, 1001 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder, CO 80302

The Boulder CSED Working Committee will do the work of producing Boulder CSED Week. Working committee members captain specific roles, such as event logistics, equipment resourcing, social media strategies and posting, contacting industry partners for in-kind donations and facilitation of 40+ events in December.

2018 Program History:

Create apps. Code robots. Design stories. Explore new technologies, new programming languages and environments, meet robots, try coding, engage with problem solving and gadgets. Meet extraordinary people of all ages doing amazing things during Boulder CSED Week.

Boulder CSED = free Computer Science Education programs for everyone at your library, school and tech partner organizations.

We have code at our fingertips as we drive our cars, check the news on a laptop, or message a friend with our cell phones. Boulder CSED Week invites learners of all ages (adults, school-aged kids, and even pre-schoolers) to consider code and create with it! Experience robots, and control them with code, make a block-based program or write out coded instructions, learn how to code a new device or make an app, visit with a robot at storytime, and more! All of Boulder CSED Week’s program are free and open to the public. Programs are hosted by local experts, educators, and makers, and inspiring technologies offer pathways for code-learners of all levels of experience. Some programs ask for pre-registration. Join us - create with code for this year’s Boulder CSED week!

Volunteer. Present. Build, test, experiment. Solve tricky bugs. Be a code creator!
