“The overall goal is to provide opportunities for all North Carolina students to learn computer science and gain the skills needed to:  

(1) create and contribute, not just use and consume, in the digital economy; and  

(2) actively engage as informed citizens in our complex, technology-driven world.  

Through collaboration and communication with multiple stakeholders, a coordinated statewide computer science initiative will strengthen pathways from kindergarten to career, address equity gaps, leverage successful programs, and encourage cross-sector partnerships throughout the state.”
