CSforAll-MN has been gathering data to craft a landscape report to examine the landscape of K-16 computer science education in Minnesota. This report will be released in 2021 and will be the first statewide report focused on computer science. It will share key data within the context of our state’s K-12 schools and higher education institutions.

In order to preview the report and ignite conversation, shorter briefs will be released during CS Ed Week (December 7 – 13, 2020). The first CS Ed Week brief will be shared December 8, 2020 – follow us on Twitter for brief release notifications!
