GOOD FOR OUR STUDENTS
GOOD FOR OUR STATE
The CS4NJ Coalition (CS4NJ) is a statewide network committed to promoting and advancing K-12 CS education in New Jersey.
We believe that all New Jersey K-12 students should have the opportunity to learn computer science. Computer Science, the basis for all computing and technology, drives job growth and innovation. Computational thinking, the problem-solving process inherent in computer science, is an essential skill across every 21st century job and career. Knowledge of computer science enables students to innovate and solve problems using technology, to critically engage in public discussions on important issues of national security and to participate in society as a responsible citizen.
CS4NJ Awarded Google Grant
The CS4NJ Coalition was recently awarded a $56,000 grant from Google to support New Jersey’s Computer Science State plan by helping prepare teachers to implement CSforALL in K-12 schools across New Jersey. The New Jersey Department of Education and the Governor’s Computer Science Advisory Board created the NJ Computer Science State Plan in 2019 to outline steps to implement quality and equitable computer science education for all students in New Jersey.
