Coding is an essential 21st century language, but coding alone won’t be enough to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s careers. What students are able to DO with code will be what matters. Students will need to be creative problem solvers in order to truly be ready for whatever lies ahead. By engaging students in STEAM as well as coding, educators will help prepare students to be creative problem solvers no matter what careers come their way.
