CHAMPS Parent Involvement

Student career choices are often influenced by their parents. Therefore, a significant goal of the project is to give parents a positive perception of the CHAMPS project and of computing in general. This is accomplished by:

  • Encouraging parents of participating students to attend CHAMPS after-school sessions
  • Holding “show and tell” sessions for parents of participating students at the end of each semester to display student work
  • Participating in open houses at each of the four participating schools to demonstrate the benefits of CHAMPS to students and their parents





  • The Erik Jonsson School of
    Engineering and Computer Science
