Algorithms Toward Justice: Reimagining CS Spaces

Mar 7, 2022

2:00pm – 3:00pm CT

Is it (and technology by extension) neutral and apolitical? In this session, leading voices in K-12 CS education will draw upon their research, data, and perspectives to reimagine an equitable future for CS education.
