For you!  
  1. A resource from us to you!  A daily slide deck featuring a Computer Science hero, an Hour of Code activity, and a quote from a CS pioneer.  Use it, change it, make it yours - because we love you!  (Courtesy of Christopher Kerr-  Newington High School)
  2. Crowdsource and Promote!  Here's a folder we'd love for you to drop your own resources, photos of your events in action, and anything else you'd like to share on the topic of CS Ed Week.  Feel free to look at what we've all put together!  We'll post some photos on Twitter and Facebook after the event concludes.  
ImportantEnsure any student photos contain only students who you have approval publicizing.  
Computer Science Education Week
 
The CSEdWeek official website is full of great resources from success stories, curricular lessons, and context.  
Hour of Code Activities
 
What can be said about the Hour of Code activities which you can deploy during CS Ed Week that hasn't been said before?  They sort activities by grade-ish band and are topical and attractive.  
Remember, your Connecticut Computer Science Teacher's association loves you!
