CSNYC Has Moved!
The New York City Foundation for Computer Science Education, also known as CSNYC, was launched in May of 2013 with a mission to bring computer science education to all of NYC’s 1.1 million students.
Early CSNYC initiatives included providing grants to professional development providers to empower NYC school teachers to bring CS content to their classrooms, and launching the “CSNYC Educators Meetup” now known as the NYC CSTA Chapter.
In 2015, CSNYC joined the NYC Department of Education and the Mayor’s office of NYC to launch Computer Science for All in New York City (CS4All NYC), a 10-year public/private initiative to bring computer science education to every New York City public school, representing 1.1 million students. By 2025, every NYC public school student in grades K-12 will receive a meaningful, high-quality CS learning experience at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
CS4All NYC is an equity initiative that focuses on female, black, and Latinx students. CS breaks down gender and racial barriers and paves the pathway to greater diversity and equality for tech jobs in the workplace. To learn more, please visit cs4all.nyc. If you are interested in supporting this initiative, please contact Jennifer Klopp, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2016, CSNYC, with support from the National Science Foundation (grant #1645894), launched CSforALL.org, a community portal for the national CS education movement. Initially, 188+ members joined, and today has grown to over 500 members. CSforALL has responded to the community’s participation by launching programs such as SCRIPT, ComputingTeacher.org, and the national CSforALL Summit to serve the needs of the community.
From 2016 to 2018, the organization saw enormous growth in its programmatic efforts supporting the national CS education community, and changed its name to CSforALL to reflect this new focus and represent the full scope of the organization’s programs.
