Computer Science Education Week 2013


The President:
Hi, everybody. This week I’m proud to join the
students, teachers, businesses, and nonprofit organizations
taking big new steps to support computer science
in America’s schools. Learning these skills isn’t
just important for your future; it’s important for
our country’s future. If we want America to
stay on the cutting edge, we need young
Americans like you to master the
tools and technology that will change the way
we do just about everything. That’s why I’m asking
you to get involved. Don’t just buy a new
videogame; make one. Don’t just download the
latest app; help design it. Don’t just play on
your phone; program it. No one’s born
a computer scientist, but with a little hard work
and some math and science, just about anyone
can become one. This week is your chance
to give it a shot. And don’t let anyone
tell you you can’t. Whether you’re a young
man or a young woman, whether you live
in a city or a rural area, computers are going to be
a big part of your future. And if you’re willing
to work and study hard, that future is yours to shape. Thanks, everybody.
