Connecticut is committed to ensuring that its young people have the computer science (CS) education that will enable them to be successful and competitive in today’s world. Governor Lamoont, Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz, the Connecticut State Department of Education and several informal education organizationsare dedicated to expanding CS access and making the existing CS programs more attractive to all students, particularly those who would not normally choose to pursue CS.
Connecticut is pleased to announce the Lieutenant Governor’s Computing Challenge under the theme of “Coding for Good.”During this second annual Computing Challenge, Connecticut youth in grades 3 – 12 are invited to create applications designed to spread positive messages, tackle important issues, or promote healthy habits.
