World Computer Literacy Day is December 2nd! This celebration of computers began in 2001, founded by the National Institute of Information Technology, an Indian computer company, after research suggested that the majority of computer users around the world were men. What started as an initiative intended to encourage the development of technological skills, particularly among children and women in India, has since expanded with aims to "create awareness and drive digital literacy in underserved communities worldwide.”

In the 21st century, computer science has become an integral part of our lives and the lives of our youngest learners. Teaching essential computer science skills as early as kindergarten can prepare young learners for an increasingly technology-dependent future, including careers that haven’t been invented yet.
