The *Beauty and Joy of Computing* AP Computer Science Principles
curriculum
is based on a popular undergraduate course at University of California,
Berkeley (UCB) and is being adapted into a high school AP CSP course by
Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC) and UCB. The BJC curriculum is
currently being field-tested in New York City public schools in
partnership
with the NYCDOE and CSNYC with funding from the National Science
Foundation.
