WHY IT MATTERS

There were 1 million software developer jobs in 2012, and that number will grow by 22% (2X the national rate) over the next decade.

There is a clear skills gap between students and industry needs. Many middle and high schools do not require computer science toward a degree. Also, several colleges and tech schools are years behind industry standards with their curriculum.

Programming helps develop a wide array of skills- critical and logical thinking, creativity and individuality, troubleshooting and problem-solving skills.

CS education is marginalized in our K-12 school systems and communities are denying access to one of the most critical skill-sets of today’s and tomorrow’s world.
