Taking IT to the Next Level: Why Computer Science is Critical
Youth access and interest in computing is exploding, but despite best intentions, we are now creating generations of tool users rather than tool builders.

Statistical evidence shows a shortage of CS workers and a continued under engagement of women and minority students. This presentation includes the systemic issues that face CS education, and new resources to address these issues.
