Applications for 2018 Aspirations in Computing Awards Open!
The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing (AiC) honors women in grades 9 through 12 who are active and interested in computing and technology, and encourages them to pursue their passions. Award for AiC recipients are chosen for their demonstrated interest and achievements in computing, proven leadership ability, academic performance, and plans for post‑secondary education. To date, nearly 8,600 women have been honored with the Award for AiC.
The multi-tiered award structure includes winner, honorable mention, and certificate of distinction designations at national and regional levels, serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and all U.S. overseas military bases. Regional Affiliates are hosted in 75 locations nationwide by NCWIT Alliance member organizations -- a powerful, national network of universities, companies, non-profits, and government organizations working to increase the meaningful participation of girls and women in computing.
Computer Science Community Networking Event
Educators, industry professionals and government leaders are invited to join Science Foundation AZ, Grand Canyon University, Arizona Regional Partners and Amazon for a Computer Science Community Networking Event. This meetup is an informal event to learn and discuss ways in which we can work together to provide our 21st century students access to technology. Our goal is to give students the opportunity to be problem-solvers, idea people, dreamers and creators of innovative products that will impact the culture of our society and contribute to the economy of Arizona.
Community Call and CSEdWeek
To kick off CSEdWeek that will take place between December 4-10, 2017, we are inviting you all to join a CSTA AZ community call. We will facilitate a discussion where CSTA AZ members can share resources, ideas, and strategies to have a successful CSEdWeek.Please mark your calendar for November 16, 2017 at 4 pm - 5 pm. We will send out a link to join the call within the next week.
AZ K-12 Computer Science Standards Development
The development of K-12 Computer Science Standards is set to begin. The Arizona Department of Education is seeking public comments to guide the process of developing K-12 Computer Science Standards. Please take the survey by November 30, 2017 to help inform and guide the development process.
The ADE is currently accepting applications from K-12 educators, higher education/post-secondary educators, business stakeholders, and parents/community members to serve on working groups and focus groups. We hope you will consider applying for the opportunity to participate in this important work. We would like to have representation from around the state. The standards review process will use an accordion model for committee selection; an individual might be selected to serve once or multiple times, depending on the focus of the work and their expertise. Members unable to serve for a particular meeting due to schedule conflicts or other concerns are still eligible to be selected to participate in future meetings. Applications will be accepted throughout the entire development process. Working groups will convene starting in January 2018.
Please visit ADE’s Computer Science Standards Development page to access the applications and for more information.
