  • "Don't just buy a new video game - make one."
    - U.S. President Barack Obama helps kick off Computer Science Education Week 2013.

    As part of the Code.org organized computer science event, Obama implored kids and young people to learn computer science in school, and get involved with making games and apps.

    "Learning these skills isn't just important for your future," he noted. "It's important for our country's future. If we want America to stay on the cutting edge, we need young Americans, like you, to master the tools and technology that will change the way we do just about everything

    "Don't just play on your phone - program it," he added. "Don't let anyone tell you you can't."
