Why is it important for students to learn computer science?

We believe computer science is foundational to other educational pursuits, like reading, writing, or math. It exercises logic and problem-solving, stimulates the imagination, and inspires students to create. Plus, computing occupations are some of the fastest-growing, best-paying, and now the number one source of new wages in the U.S.
