CSTA's Annual Conference is a chance for computer science teachers to come together to find strength in their local community through networking events, engage with PD they actually want to attend, and to identify ways to impact students and teachers outside your classroom. 

Our three-day virtual conference has over 150 sessions of education to broaden your knowledge of computer science education, inspirational keynotes and sessions to reinvigorate your passion for teaching, and countless moments of fun and connection along the way. If you are looking for new and exciting ways to engage with your students in your classroom, you don't want to miss out on this great experience.
