CSTA Central Illinois was founded in the summer of 2020. Computer Science education in Illinois is lacking and those that do teach CS need a way to connect - we're doing that here! We are supported by the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Knox College. If you would like to join us, please join via your CSTA login or contact us below.
