What is the CS Teachers Conference?

The CS Teachers Conference is a full-day conference for K-12 NYC CS teachers featuring presentations by NYC CS teachers and school teams that will take place on May 4, 2019; 9:30 am – 4:00 pm. The conference will feature a keynote speaker, breakout sessions led by NYC CS teachers and partners, a fair-style school showcase, networking opportunities, and other engaging activities!

We want to create a community and unite CS teachers across NYC, regardless of what you teach, where you teach, or how long you’ve taught.

We hope that attendees gain tools and resources that they can use in their classroom and leave feeling inspired, motivated and connected to other CS teachers.

 

Why a CS Teachers Conference?

There are many computer science (CS) teachers in NYC doing amazing work to bring CS alive for students. The CS Teachers Conference is an opportunity for CS teachers across NYC to come together, share and learn from each other, and build community.

 

What are the goals of the CS Teachers Conference?

  • To provide CS teachers with an opportunity to learn directly from other CS teachers.
  • To provide CS teachers with a platform to present and share their work with their colleagues.
  • To support the development of a broad, cross-program/curricular CS teacher community in NYC.
  • To provide CS teachers across NYC with an opportunity to network and hear about what CS looks like in other schools.
