1. . Question & Research Task. Workers with computer science skills are in high demand by employers, and not just for high-tech jobs like computer programmers and software engineers. Nearly 2/3 of jobs where computer science skills are valued are not in the technology industry. Unfortunately, it is estimated that by 2020 there will be a “skills gap” of one million workers who do not have the computer science skills needed for today’ jobs. .
Codecraft Computer Programming. SECME Regional Competition. Why? JOBS!. Computing makes up 2/3 of projected new jobs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).. Computing occupations are among the highest-paying jobs for new graduates. Yet fewer than 3% of college students graduate with a degree in computer science, and only 8% of STEM graduates are in computer science..
Creative Thinkers Wanted. 2. Myth vs. Reality. MYTH. : . Computer Science is all about word processing, sending email, and using the Internet. .. REALITY. : . While computer science makes those things possible, it’s less about using specific applications than using the computer to address problems through new applications..
