The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) Office of Computer Science is pleased to announce the 2021 Arkansas #CSTechFest. This event, taking place on Saturday, October 16th in the University of Arkansas of Little Rock (UALR) Engineering and Information Technology building, is a free hands-on event for families designed for grades 6 – 12 students. Join us for a fun-filled day exploring various topics in Computer Science and STEM such as game development, cybersecurity, and more. There is truly something for everyone!
This event is open to any and all participants from grades 6-12 and accompanying adults; however, the #CSforAR team will be providing participants that are members of Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of the USA, and 4-H with information on how the sessions align, when applicable, with the award/badge requirements within those programs. Registered participants that attend will receive an Arkansas #CSTechFest patch/badge the day of the event.
