Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!

It has been a very busy summer! CSTA-SC, in collaboration with CSTA, SCDE, and The Citadel's STEM Center, just wrapped up CSPDWeek 2021 with over 280 teachers completing 30 hours of professional development around a 11 different topics including Hands-on K8 Computational Thinking, CMU Python, and Web Page Design and Development. CSTA-SC board members also presented at the Education and Business Summit on a variety of topics.  We hope everyone is returning to the school year with a wealth of resources to leap into teaching CS this year!
 If you have any questions about CS in SC, please don't hesitate to reach out to your CSTA South Carolina board.
We are looking forward to this upcoming year for CSTA South Carolina!

Provide Feedback on CS Educator Standards 
Earlier this year, CSTA and ISTE launched an initiative to revise CS Educator Standards. In June, we opened Draft 1 of these standards for review and public comment. We’ve reviewed your feedback and are now ready to share the next draft with you. 
Your input as a CS educator is important to us! Learn more about how you can review Draft 2 of the new standards and provide your feedback.
