Clubs

Computer science is a broad field in which everyone can find a place for them. In fact, LASACS is composed of six clubs, each specializing in a different area of computer science -- so don't be afraid to try out a few clubs and see which interest you most! Feel free to look at the information below and take a look at the slideshow at the bottom of this page to learn more about each of our comprehensive offerings.

All CS clubs meet in Mr. Shockey's classroom, room 505 (except RaptorWorks in Mr. Mueller's classroom, 506) during lunch. Below is a list of all the LASACS clubs:

    • Hack Club (Monday) - Join a global community of over 14000 Hack Clubbers like you, prepare for hackathon competitions, and apply your coding skills to solve real-world problems through weekly workshops!

    • Computer Science Club (Tuesday) - The official and main Computer Science Club of LASA. We cover various kinds of CS topics, learn about UIL and international CS competitions, work on theme-based hackathons/projects, and have guest presentations!

    • Raptor Works (Tuesday - Mr. Mueller's room) - LASA's collaborative club with MIT Lincoln Laboratory's Beaver Works Summer Institute (BWSI). Join to learn more about the applications of machine learning and data science in areas such as medicine, cognitive assistants, and more!

    • Programming in Practice (Wednesday) - LASA's kickstart to a computer science career! Develop your programming skills through collaborative programming projects, learn about the vast field of computer science with our active and invested community, and help middle schoolers find their love for CS.

    • CyberPatriot/Cybersecurity (Thursday) - Learn about cybersecurity, gain hands-on experience, and prepare your team for CyberPatriot, the international cybersecurity competition wherein teams of five thoroughly secure multiple computer systems.

    • Women+ in Computer Science (Friday) - Learn about computer science through presentations, interactive sessions, discussions from industry professionals, and a wide set of resources ranging from learning programming to internship opportunities! This is also a great way to form a community with underrepresented minorities!
