NC Computer Science Education Week

To help promote a strong workforce to make sure North Carolina is prepared for the jobs of today and tomorrow, Governor Roy Cooper has declared December 4-10, 2017, Computer Science Education Week. For Computer Science Education Week, Governor Cooper will join middle school students at a Google-sponsored science coding workshop today in Charlotte. In North Carolina, there are currently more than 16,000 open computing jobs. However, in 2015, just under 1,300 postsecondary students graduated with computer science degrees in NC. In addition, fewer than 6,000 K-12 students are enrolled in a computer science course. “Computer programming skills are critical for many 21st century jobs,” Gov. Cooper said.

NC Winter Weather Preparedness Week

Governor Roy Cooper has declared Dec. 3 – 9, 2017 as Winter Weather Preparedness Week and is urging North Carolinians to plan, prepare and be ready for potentially dangerous winter weather in the months ahead. North Carolina’s proximity to the Appalachian Mountains, Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Stream can make winter weather patterns difficult to predict. It is important to monitor changing weather conditions by monitoring local media carefully. To get ready for winter weather, North Carolina Emergency Management officials urge you to: Always keep at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food in your home; Keep fresh batteries on hand for weather radios and flashlights; Properly vent kerosene heaters and do not burn charcoal indoors; and store an emergency kit in your vehicle.
