Why Computer Science?
“Ensuring that our nation’s urban and rural children have the chance to become proficient in computer science is a sure way to set them on a trajectory to great career options. We need to do this to close the digital divide and level the playing field.”
— Wendy Kopp
Founder, Teach for America
“As we think about preparing our children for college and careers in a hyper-connected, technology driven world, there is no question that computer science is more important than ever before. That’s why more students in K-12 should be exposed to computer science.”
— Michael Cohen
“Learning to code makes kids feel empowered, creative, and confident. If we want our young women to retain these traits into adulthood, a great option is to expose them to computer programming in their youth.”
— Susan Wojcicki
