Computational thinking can be related to computers and computer science, as its name would suggest. But, more broadly, computational thinking is the ability to analyze and solve problems in a logical and organized way. Unsurprisingly, computational thinking is a higher priority in education today than it was 30 years ago. In our ever-evolving world, the leaders of tomorrow will be required to use computational thinking on a daily basis. Therefore, it’s incredibly important to train young children to develop these skills early on.
