Why is programming important for kids & teens?

Computer Science is the most rapidly growing STEM field. According to Code.org co-founder Hadi Partovi, “Although only 10 percent of schools teach computer science, even one hour of exposure can be enough to change a student’s life, as it did mine. In the 21st century, this isn’t just a course you study to get a job in software—it’s important to learn even if you want to be a nurse, a journalist, an accountant, a lawyer, or even a president.”

We know programming is a vital skill for today’s youth. So do Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Will.i.am, and other notable figures. Watch the video that has garnered over 10 million views over the last year.
