On September 17th, 2016, The Loudoun Computer Science Fair held our first annual Computer Science Fair at the Rust Library in Leesburg, VA. We had 2 classrooms going all day, teaching subjects like Scratch, Python, Ruby, Computer Art, and the Hour of Code curriculum. We also had exhibits from MakerSmiths, NovaLabs, LVHS graduates, Huzzah Hobbies, IMade3D, the Loudoun Valley STEM Club, and more. We also had 12 presentations throughout the day from Loudoun students and teachers, and a special presentation from VA delegate Tag Greason, who talked to us about Virginia House Bill 831, which adds Computer Science to Virginia’s Standards of Learning. Approximately 120 students attended the event.
Next up, fall classes at various Loudoun libraries (stay tuned to this space!), and prep for Computer Science Education Week in Loudoun!
