Lieff Salonius:

Lieff Salonius is the Development Manager for Science East Science Centre. New Brunswick’s focus on innovation as the path to economic growth has challenged business and academics to consider the pathways to innovative thinking.  While IT and ICT sectors are addressing HR shortages in the short term, thousands of students diverge from science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects very early in life. How could this be when their lives are driven by science and technology and they are floating in a sea of exciting applications and devices? Lieff will discuss what children, as the world’s most creative problem-solvers, can teach us about inspiring them and forging a different future for the province. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone – please let us know you are coming by registering: http://doodle.com/23uum6pneasycc48

CanCompEd Day will be Friday, February 22, 2013. Surrounding this day, throughout the month of February, will be various events across the nation, hosted by schools, universities, and industry associations (and possibly other groups).

PURPOSE: To engage Canadian youth in computer science, to foster computer science education in schools, and to promote knowledge of computer science – its educational pathways, careers and its importance to our economy.

WEBSITE: www.cancomped.ca

Consider activities that you and your organization can undertake to shed light on the importance of computer science education in the P-12 school system: support more experienced teachers working in the area with workshops, build confidence in new teachers by holding a “learn to program” or “program a robot” fun seminar, host a panel discussion on career opportunities for youth in digital technology development, create or support a local CSTA group, host a Saturday morning Moms and Daughters computer science session, and/or hold an open house with a guest speaker that is sure to attract youth, parents and/or teachers.

Once you have an event planned, provide us with the details at link Register Your Event.

Promote your local event / activity aggressively with your local media. We wish to draw national attention to the importance of CS education to Canada and a loud national focus on February 22, 2013 can do this. Media materials are also being prepare and will be posted on the website. Please also send along to us your photos and media links at link Send Us Your Photos.

Please engage industry at every opportunity to get involved in CanCompEd day by becoming a supporter (no cost). They just have to follow the information at Become a Supporter.
