Young people who are able to "think computationally", will be better equipped and prepared to design, understand and use computer-based technologies today and in the future.
Computing is the subject that allows exploring the power of machines, understanding their language and how they work. Computational thinking generates immediate synergies with structural subjects such as Portuguese and mathematics, resulting in the improvement of students' school performance.
As well as contributing to the development of key skills, it enhances a sense of excellence and individual capabilities, and contributes to equal opportunities for young people in the future.
Teaching computing to school children and young people is a unique opportunity to make an impact on the success and inclusion of new generations.
