My name is Tess Winlock. I’m a software engineer at Google. Here’s a question, how does a picture, text message or email gets sent from one place to another? It isn’t magic. It’s the Internet, a tangible physical system that was made to move information. The Internet is a lot like the postal service, but
Computer Science Education Week is all about demystifying computer science and coding for K-12 students and really getting them engaged early. So, organizations across the world will hold events called “Hour of Code” to help drum up interest as well as help those K-12 students understand that computer science and coding can be both easy
I think 19th century was about the Industrial Revolution, about electricity, about disrupting their agricultural society and making it more advanced. The 20th century was about physics and engineering, to do more things easier in our everyday life from refrigerators to washing machines. And the 21st century is definitely the digital age. It’s the Internet.
There’s so many computer science jobs out there that are not being filled. So the more computer science teachers we have in our school systems the more students we will be able to reach. And getting past that initial fear of what computer sciences is, is what’s gonna change the whole field of computer science.
Hi my name is Mia Gil-Epner, I’m majoring in Computer Science at UC Berkeley and I work for the Department of Defense, where I try to keep information safe. The Internet is an open and public system. We all send and receive information over shared wires and connections. But even though it’s an open system,
One thing that’s great about computer science is it’s a greatly equalizing field. You can sit and build something I can sit and build something and people can judge us based on what we’ve built. In almost every aspect of human experience software is becoming more part of the DNA, more part of the genetics
(upbeat music) Hello, and welcome to BPSTechnology’s monthly webinars, episode three. Computer Science Education Week. November 28, 2018, 7:00 to 7:30. My name is Nikolas Gonzales and I am accompanied by Rhianon Gutierrez, Edward Considine, and Mark Pijanowski. Thank you for attending. Today’s theme is “Hour of Code,” yes, it’s coming. And, if you’d like
[music] SIMON HESS: It is absolutely critical that we get more computer science into our school and that all schools are participating in the Hour of Code. [music] HARISH KAMATH: I think it’s really important to get computer science into schools as early as possible. When I was a kid, something simple like making phone
It’s pretty amazing when you start building something that you want it can help change a lot of people’s lives as well. And having even a little bit of grounding in computer science can help you think about the world differently. Whether that’s algorithms or whether thats just creativity. Computer Science Principles covers lots of
Computer science has disrupted entire industries. It’s changed the way we think, it’s changed the way we communicate, it’s changed the way we work and it has the opportunity to change the way we teach students. And having even a little bit of grounding in computer science can help you think about the world differently.
