Hi all,

Submissions regarding the Draft Senior Science Australian Curriculum
close **tomorrow**.

This article in today's age made me think...

Hang on - Where's computer science?  Oh that's right it doesn't exist in
the brave new world of the new Australian Curriculum. It's a general
capability (ICT) or a "Technology" along with design, woodworking,
cooking and agriculture - in a strand called "Digital Technologies"

I've been to a couple of Google sponsored workshops advocating for the
promotion and redevelopment of computer science in high school. #CS4HS

So I have some thoughts on this. Perhaps you do too?

You have less than 24 hours to make a submission with your thoughts.

The draft curriculum is here:
(and hopefully attached)

Email submissions to Science at acara.edu.au 

Make sure to use this cover sheet

docx ? Oh no. Ok. I will attempt to attach it converted to odt.  

More info here:

please redistribute or agitate, as you see fit.
