Why Latino Students Need Computer Science Now

Speaker:  Dan Garcia – Millbrae, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Society and the Computing Profession


We all know that technology is profoundly changing the way we work, learn, communicate, and play. More significant is what this means for your students' futures and their ability to compete in the 21st century economy. Of course, scientists and engineers routinely use computer science in their work, but so do journalists, educators, healthcare specialists, marketing analysts, artists, musicians, historians, and architects. This talk will explore why all of today's students, especially those underrepresented in the field, will need to understand the basic concepts of computing, the role it plays in problem solving, and its relevance to their lives.
