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.1 Future jobs outside of computer science are also going to require computational and problem-solving skills that are developed when kids learn to code.
