Google Tech Talk October 20, 2009 ABSTRACT Presented by Maggie Johnson, Google Director of Education and University Relations, at the NSF Computer Science Education Leadership Summit. Google believes that all students should have the opportunity to become active creators of tomorrows technology. Through our diverse set of education efforts, we invest in the next generation of computer scientists and engineers, providing opportunities for all students to engage more directly in technology. To do this, we are focusing our education efforts in four strategic areas, with an emphasis on computing in core curriculum.
