Meeting other high-schoolers
Meet other like-minded high-schoolers in Charlottesville

90+ students from various high schools meet up to solve problems for 2 days. No matter your background, whether you consider yourself an artist, an athlete, a scientist, a writer, a gamer, a fashionista or something else - everyone needs a little computer science in their lives to solve problems big and small. You don’t have to know anything about computer science to join. Just be yourself and come!

Get hands on: plugged & unplugged

No matter your expertise (if any), you will learn something new about the world of Computer Science. This means you’ll be doing activities on and off the computer. Communication is very important in computer science and sometimes a computer screen gets in the way of that. Are you up for the challenge?

Share your hardwork to the public

At the very end of the event, you’ll share your hardwork with your family, friends, and whomever else decides to come. All your efforts will be rewarded! You will make a poster for your stand, prep a speech, and tell the community what you've been working so hard on the past 2 days.
