  The Bridging Real-world Infrastructure Designed to Goal-align, Engage, and Stimulate (BRIDGES) project is directed at improving the retention of sophomore students in Computer Science by (1) introducing real-world datasets (Facebook, Twitter, Earthquake data, etc) into course projects, and (2) facilitating peer mentoring of sophomores by senior CS students in shared lab experiences that involve the use of the BRIDGES infrastructure in software development. We will present preliminary results on BRIDGES and its current use in ITCS 2214: Data Structures.
