Meet PowerOn! Authors

Nov. 16, 3:30 - 4:30 pm PST

UCLA researchers Jean Ryoo and Jane Margolis will give a brief presentation of their new graphic novel Power On! that was written for and inspired by middle and high school youth as they engage with computer science.  The novel addresses some of the most important equity issues in computing: how tech can cause good and harm, and why underrepresentation of Students of Color and young women matters.
 
Even more, with CS Ed Week just around the corner, the Power On! presentation will highlight activities for your students and teacher resources that were developed in a partnership with our CSTA Equity Fellows.  Join us!
