CSTA Chapter News
Did you know that there are 97 CSTA chapters across the world, including chapters in Alaska, Nigeria and the Philippines? CSTA Western Mass members had a chance to network with and learn from CSTA members and staff at the 2022 national conference, held face-to-face in Chicago.
In honor of Computer Science Education Week (December 6-12), the Western Mass and Greater Boston chapters invited educators from across the state to join the first-ever MA Teacher Hackathon. Attendees spent the day developing coding skills by building a project in response to one of four UN Sustainability goals: zero hunger, good health and well-being, reduced inequalities, and climate action.
Over 100 teachers from across MA gathered virtually on October 3rd to create (and eat!) CS-themed pancakes and experience unplugged activities related to the classic children's picture book If You Give a Pig a Pancake. The event concluded with a "lesson sprint," where teachers designed and shared a computer science lesson centered around the book.
