Computer Science Lab & Beyond!
Computer Science Lab Goals:
What impact do we have in the community?
Our passion for students to have a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of computing extends beyond the school through our SPARK! programming, which is open to the community. SPARK! is making an impact in Charlottesville and beyond by offering innovative programs to students and teachers throughout the region at low to no cost.
- A free annual high school hackathon that brings students from schools throughout the region together with industry experts to solve real-world problems.
- Low-cost summer Exploration & Launchpad experiences for middle and high school students that bring together the best of the CS Program at STAB: innovative teaching, student-driven learning and real-world problem solving and making it available to the community.
- A free CS Institute to give K-12 educators an opportunity to get hands on with new computer science skills and tools while coming away with CS-infused lesson plans.
