Computing matters because quantitative reasoning, computational thinking, and multiscale modeling are the intellectual "heart and soul" of 21st century science and therefore are the essential skills of the modern workforce.
Computing matters because it transforms "at risk" students into students who are "competent, capable, motivated, and employable".
Computing matters because the power of interactive computing can help students reach a deeper understanding of math and science by making the learning environment "minds on" as well as "hands on".
Computing MATTERS is a project of Shodor and its partners, designed to build self-sustaining local infrastructures that enable students all over North Carolina, and eventually the nation, to grow from excitement to experience to expertise. To learn more, visit the About page.
