Exposure to CS leads to the best-paying 
jobs in the world. 
But AP CS is only available in 5% 
of high schools 
Only 15% of this tiny box 
are girls. 8% are African 
Americans, or Hispanics.
Technology affects every field
This isn’t just about tech companies 
 67% of software jobs are outside the tech industry – in banking, 
retail, government, entertainment, etc 
 We need ALL our children prepared for the 21st century 
“Knowledge of computer programming is as 
important as knowledge of anatomy when it 
comes to medical research or clinical care”

A growing need for 
problem-solving skills, 
across all jobs
Our Vision: 
every school 
every student

Editor's Notes

  1. Women, african americans, hispanic americans are woefully excluded from this foundational field (and the opportunity to access the best paying jobs in the country)
  2. We need our future doctors, lawyers, politicians, astronauts learning the basics of how technology works
  3. No matter what career students want to pursue, they will need to learn problem solving, data analysis, computational thinking
