Currently, only 1 in 10 K-12 schools in the US offers CS classes. In addition, 75% of the population is underrepresented in computer science, even though exposure to CS leads to some of the highest paying jobs in the world. Help level the playing field by bringing more girls and minorities into CS at an earlier age.
Opportunities for graduates with computer science degrees are plentiful. Jobs in computing are growing at 2x the national rate of other types of jobs.
By 2020, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts there will be 1 million more computer science jobs than graduating students qualified for them.
