AP COMPUTER SCIENCE

How can we help K-12 students gain access and retain interest in computer science as a discipline?

Computing is everywhere,
and it’s not just about coding!

Putting the X in CS

Helping students understand how computer science pertains to every field, challenges them to rethink and reimage themselves engaging with CS — and gaining access to the discipline in different ways.

The CS + X (or X + CS) gives students the ability to study computer science (CS) while combining another field of study (X). 

CS + X means combining computer science with some X, or passion field.  Embracing different pathways into computing means that X + CS is possible.  The X + CS can mean focusing on a passion field while gaining some computing/computational skills (and potentially not being a computer science major).  For example, the biology major (X) can pick up computing skills (CS) to use in bioinformatics or genetic analyses.

Only 35 states count computer science toward high school graduation. Yet, computing is all around us and in every discipline form.

What is your X (passion PLUS curiosity)? 

For some, this X is:

Medicine/Health Care
Arts
Manufacturing
Design
Business
Finance/Investment/Banking
Real Estate
Fitness
Retail
Social Justice
Marketing
Engineering
Law
Aerospace
Media
Information Technology
Data Science
Music/Movie-Making

Computing is ubiquitous…Simply put, computing is everywhere!
