A Showcase of Student Projects


What is the CS Fair?

The CS Fair is a UVM event where Computer Science students (majors, minors or just taking a class) may submit and showcase their computer projects. The purpose of the CS Fair is to give students a chance to present their work to their peers and professionals in an open and exciting environment. A panel of judges critique the student work where the prize amounts are up to $300 with many opportunities to win. This year the CS Fair will take place in the Davis Center in the Grand Maple Ballroom.
