- Legacy is a free program that prepares African American young women to take the Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles (CSP) course.
- AP CSP is offered as a year-long course that can be counted as a math elective toward graduation in Alabama.
Who can participate in Legacy?
- Any African American young woman currently in a public high school in the state of Alabama is eligible to participate in Legacy.
- Students must be planning to take AP CSP in the 2020-2021 academic year.
What will Legacy students do?
- Students will attend two residential workshops:
- Workshop 1 (June 1-5, 2020) will be at the University of Alabama
- Workshop 2 (July 9-11, 2020) will be at Tuskegee University
- Student housing will be at the university dorms (this program is for girls only, so there will be no co-ed housing and chaperones will be assigned to each group).
- Daily activities will include structured sessions, team work, project development, mentoring, and cultural activities.
- Students will continue to receive mentoring through the Academic year as they complete the AP CSP course.
Students who complete all program activities will receive a stipend of up to $2,000.
