It’s not too late – CSTA

It isn’t too late to make waves with CSTA in San Diego, California for our 2016 annual conference — July 10-12! 

CSTA 2016 is a professional development opportunity for computer science and information technology educators working in, or within the K-12 arena who need practical, classroom-focused information to help them prepare their students for the future. Conference content is peer reviewed and peer or industry led, making it relevant to today’s classroom needs. This year we are staying true to “making waves with CSTA” so we have expanded our conference to span three days, with two days worth of workshops, more industry-specific sessions, more exhibitors, along with multiple networking opportunities.


  • Explore issues and trends relating directly to your classroom
  • Learn, network, and interact
  • Choose from various workshops and breakout sessions
  • Customized administration strand
  • Amazing value (complimentary conference Wi-Fi, networking events, hands-on activities, lunch, etc.)

Some of this year’s session topics include:

  • Advanced Placement Computer Science
  • Computational Thinking
  • K-8 topics
  • Programming
  • Robotics
  • STEM


  • Conference registration: $175 for 1.5 days (April 2-June 16)
  • Workshops: $100 for the first one, $50 for each additional (three max, and must be scheduled for in advance as there is NO ONSITE registration for workshops)
  • Onsite registration: $225 for Tuesday only
  • Onsite registration: $250 for 1.5 days

Workshops are a separate price, and this year we have expanded our offerings to include options on Sunday, as well as Monday. The price is $100 for the first workshop, and $50 for each additional workshop (maximum number of three).

Please note that all workshops are BYOD (bring your own device) and that workshop registration is limited to 30-40 participants; so be sure to register early to get your first workshop choice! As an additional reminder, due to the amount of advance preparation involved with each workshop, we are UNABLE to accept workshop registrations onsite or switch options
