Oh! I missed this one last week! This is very interesting: I’ll have to look into how they “reimagined” the computer science classes. From the AEEE aggregator:

The San Francisco Chronicle (2/18, Brown) reports on an introductory computer science course at UC Berkeley that has more female students than male students. Prof. Dan Garcia said the goal of the introductory course is to expand beyond “just programming,” to make the material “kind of right-brained as well.” The Chronicle reports that Berkeley and other universities have seen an increase in the number of female computer science students. The increase in female computer science students has “coincided with a reimagining of computer science classes,” the article notes.
