EcoSystemsforCS is a new initiative launched by CSforALL with support from Schmidt Futures to provide catalyst grants to 10 communities across the US to promote community-led systems change in K-12 computer science education. Ten communities will receive funding and technical assistance over a one year period to engage a diverse set of partners in launching an ecosystem initiative to drive implementation of high quality, equitable CS.
