Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But only 45% of all high schools teach computer science. The good news is, we’re on our way to change this! If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.
From @AP_Trevor on his twitter page:
This year’s AP Calculus AB students demonstrated a slightly stronger mastery than students in 2017 and 2018, so there’s a slight increase in % of exams earning scores of 3+ this year.

3000 hours. 125 days. Almost 18 weeks. Over 4 months. No matter which way you look at it, that’s how much time Kentucky high school students participating in AdvanceKentucky’s AP College Readiness Program have invested so far in preparing for AP exams this year. What’s more impressive is that this time is in addition to their regularly scheduled classes.
