The 2023 WeTeach_CS Summit is a 2-day event which educates, empowers, and inspires K-12 CS and Cybersecurity teachers, advocates, administrators, professional development providers, university instructors, and policymakers to advance the goal of CS for All in Texas and beyond. This year’s Summit will be held in Houston, TX, at the Hyatt Regency Houston. Approximately 300 CS and Cybersecurity champions will be in attendance.
This year’s Summit aligns with the U.S. Department of Education’s YOU Belong in STEM initiative, and will highlight the theme of CS for Y’all with several plenary and breakout sessions focused on building a sense of belonging and identity in CS for both teachers and students in K12.
The WeTeach_CS (WTCS) Change Makers are teachers, counselors, or administrators who are making an impact in Computer Science education in their community. Nominate your peers to acknowledge their great work!
