Celebrate Computer Science Education Week by Coding with CleverlikeDec 02, 2021
Computer Science Education Week, or CSEdWeek, is an annual call to action to inspire students to learn computer science, advocate for equity, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners to the field.
At NASEF, we offer esports tournaments and Minecraft challenges that enable students to play their favorite games while learning career and life skills. We focus on the whole ecosystem of job opportunities.
During CSEdWeek 2021, we’re going to zero in on one aspect of the esports world: how to create the games you love to play. Thousands of students have joined our Minecraft challenges. And millions of people play Fortnite. What goes into making a custom world in Minecraft? How can you use Fortnite Creative to build a game of your own? And how can you learn robotics in Unreal Engine? Join NASEF and our developer partners for this exciting week of free livestreams, Coding with Cleverlike!
