STARS Celebration 2017

Join us for the 12th annual STARS Celebration in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, September 23! The STARS Celebration is a full-day event for college students and faculty who are interested in becoming change agents that take action to broaden participation in computing. The program features sessions on best practices in broadening participation in computing, hands-on training workshops for conducting computer science outreach programs for K-12 students, professional development sessions for both faculty and students, and a student poster session highlighting computing research, outreach, and service projects. Most importantly, the STARS Celebration event helps to build and sustain the STARS Computing Corps (STARS) community.

The STARS Celebration welcomes existing members of the STARS Computing Corps as well as newcomers who are interested in learning about how to take action and connect to national resources for broadening participation in computing! For the first time, the STARS Celebration of Broadening Participation in Computing will be co-located with the Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing, providing the opportunity to network and share with a broader audience.
