“Easy is comfortable, but difficult is more fulfilling.”
Mo-Yun Fong, Director of K-12 Education Outreach at Google, shared some inspiring words with hundreds of students and educators at the 2015 Global Student Leaders Summit in Davos, Switzerland. Through personal anecdotes and thought-provoking messages, Fong introduced the audience to a different side of computer science. While it is often thought of as “boring” and “difficult,” Fong identified computer science as a creative and rewarding field that can be learned by anyone. As “the backbone of innovation,” computer science is the key to solving the world’s problems.
Watch with your students as keynote speaker Mo-Yun Fong encourages young people to challenge themselves while improving the quality of life through technology and innovation.
