During this Computer Science Education Week, the National Science Foundation has worked with other governmental agencies to produce a series that highlights professionals who work in, or are funded by, the federal government and are using computer science to educate, uncover, and understand. Check back each day this week for links to new individual profiles. The full PDF, with all the profiles, is located at the bottom of this post. Follow us on Twitter @CSforAll @CSforAllTchrs @NSF and use #CSEdWeek and #CSspotlights learn more about awesome CS professionals!
