PROGRAM ELEMENTS

The CS Fair consists of three components:

  • Exhibit of companies, colleges and extra-curricular programs
  • Speaker engagements: interviews, panels and tech talks
  • Maker Space: hosted by blink blink, MakerState, SI Maker Space and Thimble!

Company booths ideally include technology demos or interactive elements to engage students. The best people to staff your booth are computer scientists, engineers, designers, product folks with technical skills, and recruiters. College booths are ideally staffed by admissions as well as CS / engineering departments.
