EA's Computer Science and Engineering department has again been recognized for its work in expanding interest in AP Computer Science classes for female students.
EA is one of 199 schools awarded the 2021 AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award. The department is recognized for its 2021 AP Computer Science A course- where 13 of the 25 students enrolled in the class were female.
This marks the second consecutive year that EA has won the award. In 2020, the award was given for EA's AP Computer Science Principles course where- 36 out of 69 students were female.
"As a department, we are proud to win this award for the AP Computer Science A course which historically is a male-dominated class. We are only one of a handful of schools in Southeastern Pennsylvania to win the award this year," said Computer Science and Engineering Department Chair Matt Memmo, Hon.
EA Middle School students have six computer science class offerings, including the required course for 6th graders. There are eight courses available for Upper School students.
