Next week is Hour of Code across the world.  Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools are offering computer science than 10 years ago.  It is projected that there will be 1.4 million computing jobs in 2020, but only 400,000 computer science students by 2020.  That is 1 million more jobs than students.  This is a great field to look into.  (12/5)
