Note to Student #4: $TEM

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)

Student,

As of August 2016, half of all high-paying jobs in America require at least some computer coding knowledge or skill.

“High paying” is defined by an annual income of $60,000 or more. If terms like SQL, Python, and Javascript aren’t familiar to you, then half of all U.S. companies will not be interested in hiring you.

Just something you should think about the next time you’re chilling on social media, watching TV, or playing video games.

Why not teach yourself to code. Khan Academy has a free course and it’s the real deal. 

Your future matters. Learn.
