Confusion between ICT and computer science has lead to an underestimation of the latter in the schools' curricula. Students are involved to use computers rather than to create and produce. Many efforts are done toward inserting computer science in the schools' curricula; However, Computer science should be treated at an equal level with other sciences. The concepts are not more complex than other sciences. Psychologists and pedagogists prove that students are able to learn different concepts according to their intellectual age when these concepts are brought to them with an appropriate methodology.
