ABOUT

Aimed at informative action and inclusive participation, course availability, and engagement of underrepresented groups

Awareness and ideas to rethink actions that will improve and broaden participation.

ChangeComputerScience.com is an online initiative supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) that shines a light on the access and availability of Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science (CS) courses among underrepresented high school students. 

The research compares local data with national policy initiatives to reveal how access and availability are seen — and who is really participating in computer science pathways – while informing policymakers and stakeholders with ideas to rethink actions to improve and broadening participation.

Aimed at informative action and inclusive participation, course availability, and engagement of underrepresented groups, this research focuses on access and availability of CS curricula in magnet schools while provides insight into:
