Nevada’s vision for Computer Science Education is that our students are informed citizens who can:

  • Critically engage in public discussion on computer science topics
  • Develop as learners, users, and creators of CS knowledge and artifacts
  • Better understand the role of computing in the world around them
  • Learn, perform, and express themselves in other subjects and interests
