The mission of the Primary & Secondary (K-12) sub-committee is to advance ACM SIGGRAPH as both an organization and a conference, providing unique information, educational programs, and services to teachers and young people.
Recruit a core active committee, representing the interests and needs of the education profession, the business community, professional associations, and students.
Act as a collection point for information and materials related to the ways computer graphics can be integrated into Primary & Secondary Education learning.
Establish efficient and effective ways to make information and materials accessible to classroom teachers and students.
Establish connections between the business/professional computer graphics community and the education community.
Encourage and "spotlight" student-focused programs and events.
In Support of our mission, we are posting web sites that are full of links, ideas, and inspiration. If you would like to suggest a web site, publication, article, or other item, please email James Marinez, Primary & Secondary (K-12) Education Coordinator ( james_martinez [at] siggraph.org ).
