The sky’s the limit with computer science

Every student should have a chance to learn coding and computer science. Imagine the impact we can have if the hands kids use to navigate apps and play videos games are the ones designing them too! When young children have the opportunity to be more than just consumers of technology, they can create new technologies and solutions to change the world.
