Achieving CS for ALL through the Beauty and Joy of Computing
June 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
At a time when computing is so much a part of all of our lives, has incredible job opportunities, and is so empowering, most students graduate high school without having had any introduction to computer science. A decade ago in the United States, the CSforALL movement was launched to broaden participation in computing to those traditionally underrepresented. This talk will reflect on the current state of that initiative, and introduce the “Beauty and Joy of Computing (BJC)” course, which has received worldwide attention and currently has 65% female enrollment at UC Berkeley, among the highest in the nation.
