Ohio Computer Science Advocacy DayCleveland State University is leading a state-wide effort to expand computer science education across the state. The University is joining with other non-profit organizations, schools, teachers and students to celebrate Computer Science Advocacy Day on December 10. More than 200 advocates will meet with Ohio legislators and state agency executives in the state capital of Columbus to highlight the tremendous advances that have already been made in expanding computer science education, as well as what needs to be done moving forward to ensure CS training is available for all K-12 students.
“Computer science education for all students is now critical to ensure all Ohioans have the skills necessary to be successful in the modern technology economy,” notes Nigamanth Sridhar, dean of graduate studies and professor of electrical engineering and computer science at Cleveland State and an event participant “Computer Science Advocacy Day will give us the opportunity to thank policy makers for the efforts they have already taken to expand education and training in the field, highlight some of the positive outcomes of this work and advocate for next steps to further ensure that CS for All becomes a reality.”
