Computer science drives job growth and innovation throughout our economy and society. Computing occupations are the number 1 source of all new wages in the U.S. and make up two-thirds of all projected new jobs in STEM fields, making Computer Science one of the most in-demand college degrees.
Unfortunately, computer science is marginalized throughout education, as fewer than half of all U.S. schools offer computer science courses.
The Seminole County School System has a K-12 vision for Computer Science, engaging
students at all levels, in order to develop students who are digitally literate and prepared to
enter the workforce.
During the 2020-2021 school year the Seminole County School System will be offering Computer Science to all students in grades K-6, with a goal of offering Computer Science at all levels, K-12, by the 2022-2023 school year.
In our K-6 Computer Science courses students will engage in a variety of activities, including typing, coding, robotics, engineering design, digital citizenship, drones, and 3D printing, to name a few.
