Abstract: With the continued need for prepared employees in computer and information technology occupations there is a call for K-12 schools to offer computer science courses and content (Westervelt, 2014). Likewise, there is a push for more computer science curriculum to meet such need. To help increase the number of qualified educators to teach computer science principles (CSP) at the K-12 level, the university involved in this study created CS 104, Computer Science Principles, aimed toward pre-service teachers. The purpose of this study is to examine how to better administer the course in such a way to effectively ensure participating students can and will include CSP instruction later in their careers.
