At Mobile Makers, we have a strong belief, aligned with President Obama, Apple, Chicago Public Schools, and hundreds of thousands of others who have signed petitions for Congress to require computer science in our schools, so that everyone can learn to code. One specific value we hold is that of all people, the first and most ready to learn computer science are educators.
For many people, “Computer Science” hearkens images of young men hunched over laptops -- programming, encoding, analyzing algorithms.
And while those are significant components to it, the discipline is far more wide-reaching and expansive.
Students at the Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science at WPI recently explored that diversity in a winning video for the Computer Science Teachers Association.
