Science for All Summit
June 24 -30, 2020
Raising awareness, elevating best practices, and providing professional learning for educators
As one of the fastest growing sectors in Pennsylvania's economy, there are 18,000+ unfilled computer science jobs with an average salary of $80,000 and a projected growth of up to 26% annually. To help meet this career demand and fill the gap, Pennsylvania, under the leadership of Governor Tom Wolf and Secretary Pedro Rivera, is working to create and offer opportunities for every learner in computer science. Over the past year, more than 1,300 educators were trained to utilize computer science resources from Code.org, Pennsylvania's State Board of Education voluntarily endorsed the Computer Science Teachers Association K-12 Computer Science Standards, and Governor Wolf become a leading member of the Governor's for Computer Science Initiative. The Pennsylvania Computer Science for All Summit is being coordinated to offer educators, school leaders, and stakeholders the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skillset so they can support and provide students with computer science experiences.
