According to the U.S. Department of Education, the projected increases in STEM jobs from 2010-20 will be 33 percent, which is well above the projected growth of 14 percent for all other occupations. Yet steadily, the United States is falling behind other nations in educating our students in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math). Coding literacy is a large part of STEM education and builds skills not only in the science of computing, critical thinking and problem solving but challenges students to think creatively and to communicate ideas; skills that are essential to succeed in the 21st century workforce.
