The Bottom Line Students are more likely to develop interests in a computing major when they feel confident about their capabilities to succeed, and believe that favorable consequences are likely to occur as a result of pursuing the major. -- Akbulut and Looney 2007 77% of [high school] teachers think that there are a number of qualified students who are not taking CS courses…. The main reason…is that many students see [them] as less important or less interesting than other core courses. -- Judith Gal-Ezer 2007
