We believe computer science is a foundational skill possessing the power to promote collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and student engagement. CS Education is a topic that is larger than a single technological skill; it is an equalizer that provides student voice and agency. Consequently, we view computer science as essential for all students and equity is a vital component of our vision.
The following videos feature Conard and Hall High School students and alumni to help you understand more about computer science.
