Developing skills in computer science is important for any young person regardless of whether or not this is the career path. All young people will need to be able to use computational thinking to innovate and solve problems.
The 4-H experiential learning model helps young people understand that computer science is much more than just what happens on a computer. This approach develops leadership and life skills and prepares young people to be the innovators and problem-solvers of our future.
4-H experiences help teens develop a wide variety of interests and skills, including leadership. These teen leaders use their skills to lead computer science experiences and build meaningful relationships and help young people see themselves as computer scientists.
