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. Currently, one of the 16 Brevard public high schools offers AP CS consistently.


  1. help teachers learn problem solving via animation with Alice--an educational software designed for easier transition to Java, which is used in AP CS.
  2. indirectly raise interests in CS and Alice among students (and a student competition on Alice next March).
