If you take any world problem, any issue on the planet, the solution to that problem certainly includes education. In education, the roadblock is [computing].

Computing For All presents
The Second Annual Washington State Middle School Computer Science Competition
Redmond, Washington
9:00 – 2:30 PM, Saturday, May 14, 2016


This spring Computing Kids is sponsoring a programming competition for elementary and middle school students organized by Computing for All (CFA), a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing and enhancing computer science education and opportunities for all in the great State of Washington.

On Saturday, May 14th the Second Annual Washington State Computer Science Competition will be held in The Commons of the Microsoft Corporate Redmond campus in Washington. Please check out CFA’s web site for additional details.

Ritu Bahl, founder of Computing Kids and co-organizer of the competition for the second year said “This competition will challenge young students to apply their rapidly evolving intellectual abilities and add to their experience of working together collaboratively as a team solving problems in a fun, non threatening environment”. Continuing, she added, “computational thinking is a fundamental skill for everyone, not just for computer scientists. To reading, writing, and arithmetic, we should add computational thinking to every child’s analytical ability.”.
