• 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.
