Welcome to Computer Science Education Week

Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual call to action to inspire K-12 students to learn computer science, advocate for equity in computer science education, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the field. This week is held in recognition of the birthday of Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906), who invented the first compiler and coined the term “bug” (an error in a program) after removing an actual moth from a computer in 1947.

To honor and celebrate this week, members of the Marlborough community have planned the following events and activities:

- Students from Code Violet, our coding club, created a collection of video tutorials on coding. Everything you need is on this website, and you can start coding right in your browser! 

- Each day this week, Mathematics and Computer Science Instructor and STEM+ Program Co-Head Dr. Kessner, as well as Code Violet students, will be available to answer your coding questions from 3-5pm each day this week on the Code Violet server on Discord: https://discord.gg/5Ts7zkbZCm

- On Tuesday, December 8 from 12-1pm, come hear from four Marlborough Computer Science alumnae who have continued to create great things with code! Gabi Becher '20 graduated last year, completing an Honors Research project where she analyzed North Carolina election data and wrote code to visualize the data on a map. This year Gabi took a gap year and used her data analysis skills in support of Steve Bullock's Senate campaign in Montana. Kendall Lane '18 is studying Computer Science at Cornell and was recently accepted for a 3rd internship at Google. Emma Price '18 is studying Computer Science  at Northeastern and is also working as a software developer. Bea Jones '16 is responsible for naming the coding club "Code Violet". Bea recently graduated in Computer Science from Vassar College, and she is now working as a software developer at LinkedIn.
