The AP Computer Science exam is taking place this year on Friday May 15. In addition to the usual challenges students face during this time, they’ve also had the added stress of school closures, remote learning and having to take their exams at home.
As a coalition, CSforCA is proud of the resilience computer science students in California have shown throughout this experience. We want to:
Highlight the AP CS exam and students taking AP this year in CA
Highlight the ongoing inequity in computer science education across the state, particularly for students of color, girls, and Black and Latinx girls.
