broadening participation in computing
STARs Computing Corps would like to invite you to participate in our Web Design Competition! The subject of this competition project will be a Personal Website. Personal websites are a great way to showcase not only your abilities in web design, but also gives you a chance to highlight your other achievements, interests, and hobbies.
STARS Computing Corps @ Temple University is a chapter of the national STARS Computing Corps dedicated to broadening participation and diversity in computing. All of our volunteers are students majoring in computing adjacent fields at Temple University, in Philadelphia. While we primarily engage with middle and high school students in the Philadelphia School District, we are actively working to include adults in our efforts as well. We believe that a broader and more diverse field is a stronger field.
We host free technical workshops for middle and high school students on Temple University's campus. STARS workshops range from basic website development to programming robots to 3D printing. Check out our events page to see past and upcoming workshops!
STARS @ Temple partners with various schools throughout the Philadelphia School District to provide technical presentations/ demonstrations to middle and high school students. We've presented on topics like Machine Learning, robotics, and 3D printing. Reach out to us if you'd like us to present at your school!
Our volunteers work in classrooms, both as teaching assistants and primary instructors. Currently, we partner with the Philadelphia Military Academy and Stepping Stones Scholars to teach their AP Computer Science Principles and AP Computer Science A courses. You can find our teaching materials on our resources page!
