Computer science is changing every industry on the planet.
Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to learn how to create technology. Computer science concepts also help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills to prepare students for any future career.
My Name is Lilia Becker. I'm currently a 10th grade student at the Shipley School in Bryn Mawr PA. I started coding at school using Scratch when I was in the 6th grade. I became enthusiastic about the endless possibilities coding provides so I continued to take coding classes outside of my school. Coding is creative and fun.
We live in a world surrounded by technology. However, only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works and fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. My goal is to spread the word and help students learn basic coding sills. I want them to be confident that they can develop the skills it takes to learn computer science.
