According to Education Week, nine out of ten American parents want their children to study computer science, but only one in four schools teach computer programming. However, computing makes up two-thirds of projected new jobs in STEM.
The NJCTL team has been working hard to address this major gap! We are pleased to report that that comprehensive course materials for AP Computer Science A will be ready for the 2019-2020 school year. We are also planning to develop additional introductory computer science courses starting next year. You can check out our preliminary course, AP Computer Science A here.
