Welcome!

CSTA-SMC is the new San Mateo County chapter of the Computer Science Teachers Association. The CSTA is a membership organization that supports and promotes the teaching of K-12 computer science education. CSTA-SMC was created to facilitate discussion of issues, and address needs that are unique to our locale. We join existing chapters, Silicon Valley (serving Santa Clara County) and Golden Gate (serving San Francisco and Alameda Counties), to serve all K-12 CS educators living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area.
