CSinPA: April 2022

CELEBRATIONS AND SHOUT-OUTS

Lauren Beal (Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13) received the Outstanding Local Leader Award from the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) for her exemplary work supporting LEAs with technology education. Way to go, Lauren!


The recent PA CSTA Unconference was an awesome day of learning for everyone involved, (thanks, PA CSTA chapters!) especially two lucky participants. Kisha Vaughn and Bruce Karpe were selected at random to receive a travel package to attend the 2022 CSforAllPA Summit. We're looking forward to seeing you in Harrisburg, Kisha and Bruce!


We want to celebrate CS efforts in your community!
