Here are a few important things we wanted to share with you!
"Many hands make for light work"
Hello again from your faithful CT CSTA leadership!  This issue is all about how YOU can help US make Computer Science great in Connecticut!  We have opportunities at a variety of commitment levels from an officer position, grade band advisor positions, and resource sharing. 
What do I get out of it?  Officer & Advisor positions come with credit towards CSTA Professional Development and or scholarships towards CSTA Conferences (National, New England, and or Connecticut) and any other incentives we come up with along the way.
If you have something to offer or want to take a larger role in the conversations to come reach out to us.

This person is responsible for advocating for the success of their respective grade band & moderating their respective grade band Group here on the CT CSTA website!

Help us add to our Resources!

CT CSTA is building our our "Curriculum Resources" tab with more helpful content for schools onboarding Computer Science in their districts.

We're looking for two things:

  1. A list of resources for a given CS area / course.
  2. A list of people who are SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) in said CS area / course.
To facilitate this we're going to "manage the complexity" of this project by crowd-sourcing it!  Below you will find a variety of popular Computer Science courses, subject areas, grade bands, etc.  Click on the link of a subject you know well and add any resources you feel are amazing and worth sharing.  If you want, add yourself as an SME next to your contribution so others can reach out to you if they have any questions.
Grade Bands, Courses, Clubs
  • Elementary Resources
  • Middle School Resources
  • AP Computer Science A
  • AP Computer Science Principles

Don't worry about organizing the content.  We'll sort through it all and organize it as best we can once we see what amazing work you've contributed.


Thank you for your help!  Remember, we're better together!
