    imaginative, and
    not afraid of
    failure
    social
    mobility
    empowering
    Diversity in
    tech

  6. The Computing Curriculum
    new
    >
    “From 5, children will learn to code and program, with
    algorithms, sequencing, selection and repetition;
    !
    from 11, how to use at least 2 programming languages to solve
    computational problems; to design … computational abstractions
    that model the state and behaviour of real-world problems and
    physical systems; and how instructions are stored and executed
    within a computer system.”
