The Culturally Authentic Practice to Advance Computational Thinking in Youth (CAPACiTY) program was funded by the National Science Foundation in 2016 to develop a new curriculum for the introductory high school computer science course in Georgia’s Career, Technical and Agricultural Education (CTAE) program (NSF# 1639946). The initial curriculum, Student-Centered Computing Foundations, was designed to provide students with an engaging introductory computer science experience that would encourage all students, including girls and minorities, to continue in computer science.
