Computer science instills creativity, logical reasoning, problem solving, and critical
thinking skills. Students discover the joy of innovation and invention, develop resilience through problem solving, and practice and strengthen collaboration by working together and supporting each other. Its core concepts are broad and cross-disciplinary, providing computational literacy and problem solving skills needed within and across academic and workforce contexts.
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. 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.
Computer Science ensures students are competitive and adaptable in the labor market, not just for jobs in computer science, but for many occupations that increasingly require computational thinking and problem solving skills.
