“Computer science is the study of computers and algorithmic processes, including their principles, hardware and software designs, implementation, and impact on society. Computer science education should focus on teaching students how to think computationally and create new technologies, not simply use technology.” 

“The Minnesota Department of Education supports computer science education for all learners by providing guidance and technical assistance on implementation of Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards, current best practices, Multi-tiered System of Supports in Academics, and computer science policy administration.”
