Pilot AP Computer Science Principles Course Computer Science Principles Course by Art Lopez Sweetwater High School
Introduction CSP is a proposed AP course under development that seeks to broaden participation in computing and computer science for high school and college students. CSP is a proposed AP course The CSP course curriculum within San Diego County developed and led by Dr. Beth Simon of UCSD, and Dr. Diane Baxter for ComPASS CE21.ComPASS CE21
Background and Rationale for CSP Course Students require increasing skills in computing across all STEM fields. Number of students (especially women and minorities) studying computing and computer science at both the high school and college levels has been declining alarmingly. Number of college freshmen intending to major in computer science plummeted more than 70 percent this decade.
Goals of CSP Course Introduce and provide educational opportunities for Computer Science curriculum at the high school level. CSP course is intended to foster a wider appeal for the computer science discipline and to better prepare a pipeline of STEM majors. NSF funding project and targeting to increase number of women and minorities that would take this course.
ComPASS CE21 ComPASS CE21 is recruiting and training teachers to teach CSP course in San Diego County. ComPASS CE21 ComPASS CE21 promoting and recruiting high schools and school districts to adopt course. ComPASS CE21 Curriculum designed by Dr. Beth Simon and is aligned with curriculum framework for the Pilot AP CSP course.curriculum framework
