Celebrating Computer Science Education Week - Infosys Foundation USA

Posted On: 2018-12-04 18:37:37

To commemorate this year's Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek), Infosys Foundation USA is announcing several grants to support thousands of underrepresented and underprivileged students, young adults, and educators to learn about computer science through a combination of long-term programs as well as one-time coding events across the US.

"By supporting hands-on learning events like these, as well as helping teachers get access to high quality computer science training, the Foundation is working to ensure that every child in the US has the opportunity to experience and learn these computing skills, regardless of their circumstances," said Infosys Foundation USA Chairperson Ravi Kumar S.

The Foundation is partnering with four distinguished organizations to help underrepresented populations gain greater access to computer science education nationally:

- Computer Science Teachers Association to grow membership and engagement with K-12 computer science teachers in 75 local chapters across the US.

- Family Code Night to advance K-5 computer science education to thousands of North Carolina families through family engagement, school events and related programs.

- Hispanic Heritage Foundation to create a comprehensive K-8 Spanish language pathway for Spanish ELL students in the US and launch pilots in Raleigh, NC; Hartford, CT; and San Juan, PR.

- Teach For America to provide training and resources to K-12 teachers working in high-needs schools across the US and help them integrate computational thinking across grade levels and subject areas.

"CSTA continues to work collaboratively within the CS community to identify the needs of CS teachers, supporting professional growth and creating professional learning communities to best prepare these educators to teach and learn," says CSTA Executive Director Jake Baskin.

"We believe that elementary CS education is the foundation of overcoming the digital divide, and that family engagement is a unique and largely untapped resource in advancing such learning. We are pleased to be collaborating with Infosys Foundation USA to bring Family Code Night to thousands of families in elementary schools across North Carolina through a new statewide model with a group of outstanding collaborating organizations," says John Pearce, Founder, Family Code Night.

The Hispanic Heritage Foundation believes all youth including Latinos deserve access to technology-based programs and have an opportunity to innovate and enter the workforce in a stronger position which will help America move forward," said Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of HHF. "We are energized by the commitment of Infosys Foundation USA and the other partners for their vision and leadership in CS."

"Our teachers are committed to excellence and equity in the classroom, and ensuring access to high quality STEM education and exposing students to the wonders of computer science are important parts of that work," says Cullen White, Teach For America's managing director of computer science. "With the support of Infosys Foundation USA, we're pursuing innovative programming that helps ensure more teachers in high-needs schools can bring computational thinking learning experiences to their classrooms, helping bridge the digital divide and inspiring students to become creators of technology."

In addition, Infosys Foundation USA will also provide grants to ten different organizations located across the US to host free computer science-focused events during CSEdWeek. Among the diverse groups that will participate include students from high poverty schools, girls, students with autism and learning/physical disabilities, deaf students, African American, Latino, and Native American students, and adult female live performance artists.
