every student deserves joyful, empowering, equitable, and identity-inclusive learning about computing

Unfortunately, in Washington state, fewer than <1% of students in K-12 classrooms do. In higher education, very few graduate with computing degrees. And more often than not, the ones most likely negatively affected by computing through data and algorithmic bias, surveillance, or gentrification are the least likely to learn about computing and its impacts. Washington state is being transformed by computing, but too few understand how, why, and what we can do about it.

We are a community of advocates helping achieve this vision for our state. We do this by organizing information and people who are working toward this goal, preventing siloing across schools, government, and industry, but also building joyful community centered around learning and teaching computing.

We curate informatino her for parents, current teachers, future teachers, K-12 administrators, CS faculty, Education faculty, and policymakers to learn what's happening.

Why teach CS? This wonderful K12 computer science framework video makes the case.
