Hi All,

Some of you might be interested in a Twitter chat that's happening on
Monday October 19, 8-9pm EST, focusing on how to improve accessibility and
open doors for students with disabilities in computer science. It's hosted
by the CS10K Community, a project and initiative funded by the National
Science Foundation (NSF) to to get 10,000 well-trained computer science
teachers in 10,000 high schools across the United States. We at the
University of Washington have an NSF grant called "AccessCS10K", which is
working to ensure that those "10,000 well-trained computer science
teachers" are well-trained on accessibility, and are therefore passing that
knowledge on to their students.

To participate in the Twitter chat, simply follow the #cs10k stream on
Twitter and join the conversation. The moderator will pose a series of
questions, and everyone else will discuss those questions with #cs10k #ce15
in their responses. Should be an interesting event on an important topic.

Hope to see you there!
