Girls in APCS Research

Are you an Advanced Placement Computer Science teacher?

Are you concerned about increasing the number of women in computing? 

Are you willing to help out a fellow teacher with a research project?

If so, please find the time to help Derek Miller. There is a link after the introduction to Derek and his project.Thanks.

Derek Miller is a computer science teacher from the suburbs of Chicago and has been an AP grader for five years. He is currently working on his dissertation and needs as many AP Computer Science teachers as possible to take a 20-minute survey. The results of the survey and follow-up interviews with a handful of participants will hopefully generate some ideas to help recruit and retain more girls in computer science classes. All participants will receive the research results so hopefully everyone will learn something by taking the survey. If you have any questions, please let Derek know by emailing him at
