ANova is a student organization dedicated to improving computer science education in under-resourced communities across the Bay Area. Our outreach and mentorship efforts strive to introduce students of all backgrounds to computer science.
Since our conception in Fall '15, our services have reached 14 schools and over 550 students, and our members spend more than 150 hours each week teaching our curriculum.
ANova partners with middle and high school teachers and administrators to develop curriculum catered individually for each classroom. Our members go on weekly visits to our partnered schools either to enrich an existing computer science class, or to teach a project-based afterschool program.
Every semester, the club hosts ANova Hacks, a 10-hour hackathon for high school students held on the UC Berkeley campus. Over the course of the day, students will work in teams of four to design and code an innovative idea to solve real-world problems.
ANova is driven by a tight-knit community of UC Berkeley students, who are passionate about educational outreach and computer science mentorship. As part of our committees, members work on various projects such as curriculum building, web development, and event planning.
