CBSE To Introduce Coding, Data Science In Curriculum



The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has collaborated with software giant Microsoft to introduce coding and data science in schools. The coding will be introduced for classes 6 to 8 and the data science curriculum for classes 8 to 12. Education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ tweeted, “Under #NEP2020, we promised to introduce coding & data science in schools. Today, I’m happy to see #CBSE fulfilling the promise right in the session of Year 2021 itself. In association with @Microsoft @cbseindia29 is empowering India’s future generations with new-age skills. Kudos”

“The idea is to simplify the coding learning experience by nurturing design thinking, logical flow of ideas and apply this across the disciplines. The foundations laid in the early years will help the students to build the competencies in the area of AI, Data Sciences and other disciplines,” said the notification sent to all CBSE schools.
