In this session participants will learn about computer science and its place in K-12 education. What is computer science? How does it fit in with STEM and other disciplinary areas? How can it be effectively incorporated into the curriculum? What are some free tools and resources available? These are some of the topics that will be explored in a presentation format that is open to conversation. Computing impacts nearly every aspect of our lives. Employers across all industries are scrambling for people with complex computing skills - STEM, healthcare, business and finance, arts and media, and more. In STEM alone, computer-related occupations represent 45% of all jobs, and these occupations are growing at double the national average. High representation and fast growth will lead to far more new jobs over the next 10 years than any other STEM group - 8X as many as the next highest growth area, engineering.
