Called the largest learning event in history, Computer Science Education Week aims to get K-12 students excited about computer coding.
Coding involves telling the computer what to do by writing out instructions. Although computer users don’t see it, coding is everywhere. Any type of computer device, such as desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones uses coding. Coding is used to create websites and apps. Computer coding even tells robots what to do.
Along with coding, this week also promotes the importance of computer science. This is an important subject because it teaches problem-solving and analytical skills.
