      *AP CS: Principles is a new Advanced Placement course in preparation by the College Board, for introduction in 2015. It is meant to align with college “CS 0” courses for non-CS majors. (The existing AP CS A, aligned with “CS 1” courses, will continue under the name AP CS: Programming.) BJC was used in two of the initial five pilot sites for the new AP, and meets the curriculum standard for it. The new AP standard is very flexible in its details, including both the amount of computer programming taught and the programming language used. We feel that the SNAP! visual programming language allows us to present, in BJC, a technically rigorous course, including recursion and higher order functions, that still attracts and retains non-CS majors,women, and minorities.
