The beginning of October came with some very exciting news when Governor Murphy announced his Computer Science for All initiatives. This means that $2 million dollars in CS grant money will be awarded to 45 schools, the STEM office at the NJDOE now includes Computer Science, the Computer Science Advisory Committee will make recommendations on standards and the state CS action plan, and finally, Governor Murphy is joining GovernorsForCS.
We hope you’re just as excited about this as we are! These important events all contribute towards ensuring that the students of our state will be well prepared for jobs of the future. This is the first time New Jersey funding has specifically targeted Computer Science education! Keep up the good work Governor Murphy!
