Today’s Google doodle celebrated british thinker and instigator of the modern computer Alan Turing, and Peter Baron began by summarising the current debate on computer science education in the UK.

Screen_shot_2012-06-23_at_09

Since 2002 the number of undergraduates taking computer science has falled by 23 %. Only half of 1 % are now taking the subject at A level, yet 98 % of Google engineers have been exposed to computer science at secondary school. 

Many are well aware of the debate about computer science in the UK, the same debate is happening in India. Where the next generation of talkent in computer science comes from, Peter says, is up for grabs.

Peter pledged Google’s support in getting computer science into schools in the UK, his answer seemed to focus on inspiration of young people; the Google doodle is the start, what will come next?
