    Teachers agree that computer science is the future for schoolchildren "John Stout, who teaches computing to A-level students at King George V Sixth Form College in Southport, Merseyside, takes his 13-year-old grandson as an example: "At home, in his spare time, he uses a site called Mindcraft, which is an online game. He's creating new systems for it, setting up servers, writing bits of programming for it – stuff far in advance of what he is doing at school."
