Getting CS education into kids' hands, so to speak...

What's the best way to get our school age kids technology literate?
Should we just kinda let it happen through their everyday interactions with it outside the school system? As if by osmosis?
Should we do it in after school programs?
Should we try to get industry to push it into schools though sponsored extra curricular clubs?
Should we try to push it into state wide curriculum?
All of these will have pros and cons, meet various resistance, and constraints.
I have thought about this quite often, and have not come up with a good solution. I will try to break each down in the next few weeks.
