CSNYC is pleased to incubate the CSforAll Consortium – a national organization that was formed in response to to the growing CS education community, the broadly bipartisan support for computer science, and the President’s call to action to provide every student with access to CS education.
Computer Science for All (CSforAll) is a bold new initiative to empower all students from kindergarten through high school to learn computer science and be equipped with the computational thinking skills they need to be creators in the digital economy, not just consumers, and to be active citizens in our technology-driven world.
The CSforAll Consortium website, csforall.org, is a hub for families, schools, and districts looking for resources that match their needs, including content by grade level and target audience. The site connects members of the national CS education community, provides an avenue for disseminating their work, and tracks our collective progress toward the goal of providing every student with the opportunity to learn CS.
We are proud to leverage what we have learned from our efforts to bring computer science to every student in the New York City public schools. The CSforAll Consortium enables us to give back to the national community and help build momentum.
Launched in September 2016 with funding from the National Science Foundation, the Consortium currently comprises more than 320 organizations including nonprofits, government, industry, and education organizations, as well as experts and advocates who contribute to the growth of the CS education movement.
The Consortium steering committee is chaired by CSNYC and includes the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), Code.org, The College Board, the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT).
