We will be using the same system for the conference professional development credits and certificates. In order to receive your personalized certificate with your credit hours, you will need to complete the overall conference evaluation. You will have the option to evaluate each of the workshops and sessions you attend. As you select your completed itinerary, your professional development hours will be tallied for your certificate. The evaluations and certificates will be available through the app so be sure to download CSTA 2017 from your app store!

CSTA 2017 is a professional development opportunity for computer science and information technology educators working in, or within the K-12 arena who need practical, classroom-focused information to help them prepare their students for the future. Conference content is peer reviewed and peer or industry led, making it relevant to today's classroom needs. We expanded our conference to span three days, with two days of workshops, more industry-specific sessions, more exhibitors, along with multiple networking opportunities.
