What is it?
It’s a “one-hour” introduction to computer science designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, creator, an innovator.
- Learning computer science challenges us to think differently and problem solve in new ways.
- New programming jobs are growing three times faster than the number of students entering the field.
- More than 50 percent of all math and science jobs are for computer scientists.
- Computer science jobs are the highest-paying jobs for new graduates.
