Every December there’s a huge influx of computer science education activities due to Computer Science Education Week (CSEd Week.) The Constellations Center for Equity in Computing (Constellations) regularly introduces students to computing concepts in Atlanta’s public school classrooms and expanded these opportunities during CSEd week.

The center reached more than 900 students at high schools in the Atlanta Public School (APS) district, a 500% increase from the same period in 2018, by hosting computer science carnivals that select teachers could opt to bring their classes to.
