Coding is super important right now because it is how everything we use operates! There are new and exciting applications for coding like self-driving cars, but there are also simpler things that are super important every day. Hospitals rely on lots of programs for obtaining patient information, finding a diagnosis, or reading x-rays and other scans. The government and military also rely on lots of code to fly planes, do research, and administer taxes and welfare programs. We can do so much with code, and it is important that in the future we use it fairly and securely!
