Our economy is rapidly shifting, and both educators and business leaders are increasingly recognizing that computer science (CS) is an essential skill necessary for economic opportunity and social mobility.

Tomorrow’s leaders will use technology to shape their world by solving problems in their community, region, state and nation. By problems, we don’t just mean problems in the field of computer science, but also in art, music, storytelling, science, medicine, transportation, agriculture, and more.

CS for Oregon has an equity-minded commitment to bring rigorous, inclusive, evidence-based computer science education to all Oregon students, including those who have historically been underrepresented. Our goal is to develop critical and computational thinking skills and to empower students to personally and professionally thrive in a digital world.

No other subject will open as many doors in the 21st Century,
regardless of a student’s ultimate field of study or occupation, as computer science.
