Middle school girls workshop conference. This event seeks to engage middle school girls - a key age where evidence shows girls often self-select out of STEM and computing fields of interest - in STEM through the lense of the arts and computer science. This one-day conference offers pathways via workshops and a diverse array of speakers from fields where STEM intersects with the arts and computing.

Adolescents

This one-day event at the Science Museum of Virginia provides more than 200 students from Richmond Public Schools with first-hand fun exposure to computer science. It also serves as the statewide launch of CS Education Week, and is live-streamed across the state, engaging students and classrooms through a “pep rally” style event that includes fun speakers and group activities that engage students in computer science.

CodeVA gifted this program to the national Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) because of the belief that the international organization representing teachers should oversee this entity. CodeVA continues to support the Honor Society in Virginia, as well as the CSTA chapters in state (CodeVA founded four of the six chapters in state). The Computer Science Honor Society was founded by CodeVA for Virginia, but now has chapters in many other states. This service-focused organization encourages high school computer science students to engage their communities through outreach, and to adhere to high ethical standards in computing.
