CSTA Quarterly Chapter Meeting

Please join us for our upcoming CSTA- UCSD Supercomputer Center Partnership Meeting.

Wednesday, October 16, 2013
4:30pm- 6:30pm
SDSC Auditorium
San Diego Supercomputer Center
University of California, San Diego

Please join us to learn about what’s happening in the region’s community of computer science teachers, and discover some new tools and resources to support your teaching. So much has happened since our meeting last February! Be sure to bring your laptops to this meeting! By popular demand, each meeting will now introduce a hands-on featured open-source software that you can easily use in your classroom and/or teach to your students.

This meeting is really important, as we will have elections for the coming year’s board positions. Please nominate yourself (or a peer) for any position that interests you (or them). At this time of much change in the region’s secondary school curriculum, the San Diego chapter of CSTA can truly make a difference in our community, introducing computational thinking to all students, to help them succeed in any career they choose.
