    Why We Teach Computer Science
    Cs Promotes 21st Century Skills like creativity, coll.aboration, and communication.
    CS skills will help level the playing field and help close the "digital divide" and "participation gap" around tech for all students
    CS is often project based approaches that can enhance school pedagogy and move away from sage on the stage approaches
