CT Summit 2018 Recap 0 J. Corricelli There is considerable excitement in Connecticut’s K-12 Education Community for Computer Science Education. On Friday, March 16 the Connecticut Chapter of Computer Science Teachers Association (CTCSTA), in collaboration with the Connecticut State Department of Education, hosted the CS4CT Summit 2018 – a statewide summit for K-12 educators and administrators to advance computer science education across Connecticut. The theme of the one-day summit was “Launching the Computer Science Revolution in Connecticut”. The Summit, the first of its knd in Connecticut, was designed to empower school districts across the state with resources and strategies to bolster computer science education across all grade levels. A core focus of the summit was to promote equity and broaden participation in computing, such that all students across the state have access to computer science education.  The Summit was sold out well before the meeting. By squeezing as many people as possible in, the Summit was able to accommodate more than 250 registrants representing over 80 districts and private schools across Connecticut. The attendees invite all who could not attend to join Connecticut’s Computer Science Revolution! Read more about the Summit program
