This is a question many young students ask themselves. And although the answer may not always be clear, one thing is for certain. In the technological age we live in, with computers, apps, gadgets and games rapidly developing, computer science may be an important skill for many jobs in the future.

The Code of the Future

Whether you want to be a doctor, teacher, or artist, many careers are beginning to incorporate computer science into their skillset. Every app, game, and computer program starts with a code. "Coding is the act of creating technology rather than just using it, " says Hadi Partovi. He is a cofounder of the nonprofit site Code.org, which promotes participation in computer science.

To help students learn about coding, Code.org established Computer Science Education Week. Computer Science Education Week is designed to celebrate computer science, and give students the opportunity to explore coding in a fun way. Organizers say it gives students a chance to build a foundation that they can apply to a variety of pursuits in the future.

A computer science class at Inwood Early College for Health & Information Technologies participates in the Hour of Code.

Held this year from December 8 to December 12, students in schools around the globe participated in the Hour of Code. During this week, they used various coding programs and games to complete challenges in computer science.

Inwood Early College for Health & Information Technologies, a school in New York City, worked with Microsoft’s YouthSpark for Computer Science Education Week program. YouthSpark is an initiative created by Microsoft to encourage young students to use and develop their skills with technology, and learn how those skills can be applied to everyday life. We are working to make computer science a requirement in schools, ” Microsoft citizenship director Donna Woodall told TFK.

According to the College Board and the Computer Science Teachers Association, only one out of 10 schools in the United States offers computer-science classes. Programs like YouthSpark and Code.org aim to change that so that more students have the opportunity to learn computer programming.
