Computer Science Education in Tennessee – Virtual Event – Greater Nashville Technology Council

Program hosted on June 16, 2020 – more details here: http://technologycouncil.memberzone.com/events/details/computer-science-education-in-tennessee-7583

In the 2019 Legislative Session of the Tennessee General Assembly, the Greater Nashville Technology Council supported legislation that required the state Department of Education to produce a study on the availability of computer science education across the state.

That report has finally been released! https://files.constantcontact.com/a5121d18701/00c05991-9ffc-4f2c-b3be-bf5d574aed36.pdf

The NTC, in conjunction with ChaTech, the Greater Memphis IT Council, and Knoxville Technology Council (see links below) convened a panel discussion on the findings with leaders from across the state who were part of the task force that worked to produce the report.
