Just 20 percent of the 30,000 students who took the Advanced Placement computer science test last year were girls, according to a College Board analysis, which showed no girls at all took the test in Mississippi, Montana or Wyoming.

“That level of participation from a wide swath of San Jose organizations is a major change.”. Cathy Kimball, executive director at the ICA, agreed. “For the first time, the art venues working with the festival sat down “… and really discussed how our exhibitions might speak to each other, and how they would reflect the theme of Zero One,” she said. “I think you’re going see a cohesiveness to the festival that wasn’t there before.”. In addition, said Goldstein, “the theme for Zero One this year — ‘Build Your Own World’ — is well articulated, so everyone really got into the mode of looking at ways artists are creating their own worlds. “… This is a place where people are really interested in invention and problem-solving and trying to make something new.”.

The Modesto musician had an epiphany in 2011 performing with Orquesta Dharma at Cal State Stanislaus, where he’s on the faculty. A student brass combo from a course he was teaching played an opening set, and for the concert’s grand finale, they joined his band on a piece he designed to move from a New Orleans beat to a cha cha.
