BRIDGES: A System to Enable Creation of Engaging Data Structures Assignments with Real-World Data and VisualizationsAlthough undergraduate enrollment in Computer Science has remained strong and seen substantial increases in the past decade, retention of majors remains a significant concern, particularly for students at the freshman and sophomore level that are tackling foundational courses on algorithms and data structures.
