All students need to have foundational computer science skills to contribute to our technology-centered society. This project supported the Bio-CS Bridge Project in promoting broader computer science interest among high school students by integrating scientific practices with computer science approaches to address real-world problems. Through backward curriculum design and incorporation of computational thinking practices, a new unit of computational problem-solving was created, and existing units were enhanced. The bridge between biology and computer science was strengthened throughout all computer science units in the Bio-CS Bridge curriculum by making connections to pollinator decline and loss of biodiversity.
