Who are we?
Our Western New York CSTA Chapter was founded in October 2008. Since its inception we have sustained a growing number of members in our community. Our chapter meets monthly on the third Thursday of each month from 5:00 - 7:00pm at various schools around the region. If you are interested in hosting a meeting, please contact chapter leadership.
Our Mission
To develop a community to promote computing as a discipline and a career option to K-16 students by engaging all K-16 stakeholders (including but not limited to students, parents, educators, counselors, administrators and employers) in the Western New York region, with a special emphasis in increasing the diversity of the student body participating in computing.
