Coding

"Computer science is the art of blending human ideas and digital tools to increase our power. Computer scientists work in so many different areas: writing apps for phones, curing diseases, creating animated movies, working on social media, building robots that explore other planets and so much more." -Code.org

"I think everybody in this country should learn how to program because it teaches you how to think." - Steve Jobs
