Expanding Access to Computer Science Education Nationally
Students who take AP Computer Science Principles in high school are more than 3 times as likely to major in computer science in college. Yet many minority students lack access to Computer Science education, contributing to underrepresentation in fields that rely upon these skills.
With $2.75 million in support from our firm and our colleagues, 500 more high schools with significant Black student populations across the United States will be able to offer AP Computer Science Principles. By bringing new students into these courses, we aim to broaden interest and participation in STEM fields among historically underrepresented students across the country.
