On Science Friday this segment talked about why finding this Neanderthal art was important. Why – it showed that these early human could think symbolically, think abstractly. It is this thinking that separates us from other animals. I am sitting here thinking and drinking a cup of coffee out of my Einstein mug that says “Logic will get you from A to B, but imagination will get you everywhere.” That is why we need art and computer science on the same pathway. Computer Science is a way out of poverty. It sparks the imagination. It helps kids build their brains for the future.
Coding in the Arts is empowerment.
