In part one of this two-part episode, we hear the origin story of someone who was not your average computer scientist growing up. Dr. Christina Gardner-McCune was not “sitting around building servers” in her free time. Instead, she participated in student government cheerleading and developed a passion for education-based interventions. Although she had a couple of setbacks and restarts in her educational journey with her mother’s encouragement and a desire to blend her creativity with computer science, Dr. Gardner McCune was able to lay the foundations for her career successfully.
Dr. Gardner McCune was an AP CS Principles Development committee member, not the leader of the committee as stated in the episode.
Dr. Gardner McCune’s Middle School Vice Principal’s name was Mr. Salters.
