This three-year project is designed to develop and evaluate a support program to enhance the interest and persistence of female students in pre-college computer science. By working with computer science teachers, students, and counselors from eight Houston ISD high schools, our aim is to improve the quality of instruction and the numbers of females enrolled in computer science classes. This should give these girls sufficient high-quality exposure to computing so they can make informed decisions about whether to pursue computer science as a college major and a life career, and will hopefully will provide a successful model for improving similar situations nationwide.
