Participants were urged to think beyond the number of computer science majors and instead focus on how to make computer science accessible across all fields and at all levels. Participants were asked to think about the "Big Tent" view of computer science:
Interdisciplinary computer science is becoming the norm. In emerging areas, such as data science, computer science plays a critical role
Failure is part of software system development and learning how to write code. Learning to code is not easy and students need to understand that it takes work and sometimes a lot of testing for the correct operation to occur.
Learning to code should be required for all disciplines. The coding language does not matter ; it is the process that is essential.
The public does not yet understand the discipline , and we do not do a good job of educating them. Computer science does not have the appeal of natural sciences such as biology or physics because people do not experience it, or realize they experience it in their everyday lives. The field needs to be more accessible so the public can be educated about the work that is performed in such an important specialty.
Radically rethinking college-level math: Modern computers and their rich software suites have become the perfect platforms for learning college-level math in an engaging, project-oriented fashion.
