On Friday, May 17, 2013, CE21-Maryland hosted a Summit for Computing Education at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) campus in Catonsville, Maryland. Among those in attendance were teachers, administrators, legislators, industry leaders, and others with an interest in expanding computer science in high school or middle school. This diverse range of backgrounds and experiences helped inform how the CE21 project could better aid teachers in introducing computer science to more Maryland high school students.
