Our last guest is Maureen Reyes, Executive Director, AP Program Management at the College Board. Ms. Reyes will discuss why the New College Board research suggests CSP participation influences students’ college major choice, with students who take AP CSP more than twice as likely to declare a computer science major at the start of college compared to similar students who did not have CSP available to them. CSP often serves as the entryway into STEM for many Black, Hispanic, and first-generation students. In the class of 2019, CSP was the first AP STEM course for more than half of Black students (68%), Hispanic students (59%) and first-generation students (60%) taking CSP.
