What is computer science?

Put simply, computer science (CS) is learning how to use the power of computers to solve problems. It’s the study of computers and algorithmic processes, their principals, their designs, their applications, and their impact on society.

Why is computer science important?

CS teaches problem solving and important skills like communication, collaboration, and design. There are tremendous career opportunities, and CS is relevant to all career pathways. The Bellevue School District recognizes computer science as increasingly important in today’s world.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
