The below statement came to me from “ID Tech”. They run camps and online tutorials in areas such as computer programming and robotics.
“No matter how the dice land, tech skills end up on top. The U.S. Department of Commerce Economics and Statistics Administration is projecting that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) occupations will grow by 17% percent from 2008-2018, nearly double the average 9.8% for other occupations.”
Food for thought….One cannot deny the impact the computer world has had on how we conduct our everyday lives. It seems to be becoming increasingly important that the next generation understand and be able to utilize and manipulate technology for themselves and for the greater good.
