Join us for Computer Science Education Week!

Last year’s Computer Science (CS) Education Week lived up to its name, going “Beyond” to create opportunities for all of our students—not just the programmers—to find their place in the tech world.

 

If your school would like to celebrate with us, please fill out our form below to let us know what activities your students are interested in, and we’ll do our best to match you with a fitting volunteer or group. (TK – 8 schools please fill out form for your K – 5 and 6 – 8 students separately. If you wants multiple grades to participate, you may need to fill out the form twice.)

We’re also looking for volunteers! Community members or tech professionals interested in volunteering, please sign up using the button below.

We’ll go above and beyond by bringing a range of dynamic and interactive computer-science experiences to your school, including:

 

Grades 6-12: Demos, Case Studies, and Guest Speakers
Grades K-5: Hour of Code and Guest Speakers

Click the SIGN UP button on the left to see much more detail on all of these opportunities. Also, volunteers, please check out our step-by-step video below if you’re interested in running a case study.

 

We are also going beyond the classroom, with opportunities to visit professionals in the fields of music, sports, fashion, political organizing, healthcare, and more. We’ll have more details on these out-of-classroom experiences soon, but please let us know on the form if they interest you. Here’s to filling the week new worlds of technology for Oakland students to explore!

A big thanks to the partners that will bring opportunities and volunteers to our kids: Intel, Salesforce, Pandora, The Hidden Genius Project, Kapor Center for Social Impact, and the City of Oakland.
