Computer Science Education Week 2012Where you able to participate in Computer Science Education Week?  Where there any memorable moments?

My favorite Tweets and links about Computer Science Education Week

@drugmonkeyblog: #thatsofreud RT @funkyNMR: This is how computer scientits read “50 Shades of Grey” http://btfy.me/x6r2dy #CSEdWeek lol

@ileducprof: Clemson leads U.S. in recruiting tenure-track black faculty in computer science http://www.clemson.edu/media-relations/4413/clemson-leads-us-in-recruiting-tenure-track-black-faculty-in-computer-science/#.UMT8r_t_4zU.twitter … #BlackEdu#CSEdWeek

RT @ClareJHooper: why aren’t there more women in engineering? Why does it matter? http://www.clarehooper.net/blog/2012/12/women-in-engineering/ … #CSEdWeek

And then I came across this link: Britney Exline, Nation’s Youngest African-American Engineer

She’s a graduate from University of Pennsylvania, earning a degree in Computer Science. Presently, she is a Software Engineer  on the East Coast and only 20 years old. Amazing huh?

I especially loved the announcements of Scholarship Opportunities in Computer Sciences provided by Volunteen Nation, an online program to catalog and disseminate volunteer opportunities for young people. It started in St. Louis, Missouri so it has been on radar a while.
