DESIGN PATTERNS

Computational thinking is a necessary fundamental skill for everyone. It's as important as reading, writing, and arithmetic. The need is evidenced by MIT's recent report on computational thinking. President Obama's Computer Science for All initiative recognized the same in k-12, "Our economy is rapidly shifting, and both educators and business leaders are increasingly recognizing that computer science (CS) is a “new basic” skill necessary for economic opportunity and social mobility." Join us in a journey to the fun world of computation!
