Hour of Code 2021: Computer science everywhere!

"Computer science has helped unlock mysteries in math and medicine. It’s been used to create art, including your favorite games, movies, and TV shows. It helps us eradicate diseases and enables us to explore the depths of outer space. It allows us to imagine ancient civilizations, as well as build the cities of the future. And obviously, computer science is responsible for the very device you’re reading this story on!
Computer science is everywhere, and we’re discovering new uses for it every day" ( 2021).
