According to the Bureau of Labor & Statistics, in 2018 the U.S. is expected to produce only 29% of the required number of graduates to fill the 1.4 million U.S. computer specialty job openings that are forecast.* Future jobs outside of computer science are also going to require computational and problem-solving skills that are developed when kids learn to code.
