1. Why COMPUTER SCIENCE? 為什麼要學習電腦科學?

We are living in a world with digital technology, from banking, medicine, entertainment to retail. While our students know how to use it, they rarely learn how it works. Computer science is an integral component of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). To be prepared for the 21st century, students must understand the principles and practices of computer science in order to innovate, succeed and thrive.

從銀行,醫藥,娛樂以至零售行業,我們生活在被科技包圍的世界。學生們學習如何使用不同的科技,然而他們很少了解那些科技是如何運作的。電腦科學是STEM (數理科技- 科學,技術,工程和數學)的一個重要部分。為準備21世紀的挑戰,學生必須了解電腦科學的原理和實踐,以繼續創新並取得成功。
