Networking & Fundraising
Come join us for some fun events where we’ll introduce some simple yet useful CS topics, tools, and activities. You’ll also walk away knowing how you as a parent or teacher can become a better advocate for CS curriculum improvements in schools. You’ll learn some simple coding-related activities plus see demos on how to best utilize tech in the classroom or at home.
