Post-workshop notes


Computer Science (CS) has impacted our daily lives--from how we communicate to how we shop. It has also helped advance our understanding in various academic fields such as biology, physics, and medicine. CS has been an Advanced Placement (AP) subject since 1984. In recent years, one of the 16 Brevard public high schools offers AP CS consistently.


  1. help teachers learn basic knowledge in computer science and problem solving with Java, which is used in AP CS (and potentially in the proposed AP CS Principles).
  2. indirectly raise interests in CS among students.
