CS LISTEN UP Conference

In Spring 2021 and 2022 CS LISTEN hosted successful conferences for our students to present the data they collected to their Principles, District leaders, Parents, Teachers and other important community figures. The conference also served to allow the students who had been closely analyzing the Computer Science (CS) programs of their school to provide recommendations to the district and administration advising them on how to support and strengthen CS programs.
