    Puzzles and mazes provide a context for developing computational thinking and applying Trémaux’s algorithm.
    The rapid growth of digital technology, including the worldwide adoption of mobile and embedded computers, places new demands on K–grade 12 educators and their students. We believe that young people should have an opportunity to learn the technical knowledge of computer science (e.g., computer programming, mathematical logic, and discrete mathematics) to participate in the growing digital economy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that by 2020, 62 percent of new jobs in the STEM occupations will require computer science knowledge (Austin 2013).
