"Why Computer Science?

Computer science drives job growth and innovation throughout our economy and society. Computing occupations are the number 1 source of all new wages in the U.S. and make up two-thirds of all projected new jobs in STEM fields, making Computer Science one of the most in-demand college degrees.

And computing is used all around us and in virtually every field. In other words, it’s foundational knowledge that all students need. Unfortunately, computer science is marginalized throughout education. Fewer than half of U.S. schools offer any computer science courses and only 8% of STEM graduates study it. We need to improve access for all students, including groups who have traditionally been underrepresented."

      "Computer Science promotes lifelong skills of critical thinking, problem solving, computational thinking and real-world application of math skills.  Along with acquiring applicable skills of coding and programming, students are able to stay motivated and be creative using the tools and tech that surrounds them on a daily basis.  Students are already fluent in the use and consumption of today’s technology. It is important that they see technology as a platform to develop their ideas, create, think, solve and apply solutions to their own problems."
