Engaging Out-of-School Time Leaders in Cultivating Interest and Competencies in Computing
Computing touches nearly every facet of our daily lives, both personally and professionally. Developing computing competencies will prepare young people for informed civic engagement and rewarding careers, and strengthen the pipeline of talent for employers. Please join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for a series of webinars based on the recently released report Cultivating Interest and Competencies in Computing: Authentic Experiences and Design Factors.
Join us as we talk through what leaders in out-of-school time spaces can do to ensure that all learners have opportunities to develop interest and competencies in computing.
