    will.i.am is going back to school and furthering his education in computer science.

    The Black Eyed Pea is enrolling in a computer science class at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in Los Angeles in September.

    "The future is technology and I want to see kids embrace that," he said about why he is taking the class. "The world doesn't need another musician, it needs another Bill Gates. When I tell kids they should be computer scientists and mathematicians, I'm not just saying that because it's cool to say...In September I’ll be taking a computer science course at CalArts in L.A. because I’m passionate about where the world's going. I'm curious about it and I want to contribute."

    Would you like to take computer science classes to improve your knowledge of technology, too? Do you agree with will's stance?
