Computer science is woven into the fabric of our culture and used in almost every field, driving job growth and innovation throughout our economy and society. According to an article on LinkedIn, computing occupations are the number one source of all new wages in the U.S., making computer science one of the most in-demand college degrees.

Yet, a 2015 Gallup poll found that about 91 percent of our K-12 parents want their child’s school to teach computer science, but according to a 2016 Gallup poll, only 40 percent of the schools teach it.
