Several organizations will be taking part in Hour of Code events Monday throughout the state. Companies and organizations including Eleven Fifty Coding Academy, Nextech and WorkOne will help lead the effort aimed at encouraging people, particularly students, to pursue education and careers in information technology.
Governor Pence says the effort is an "incredible chance for students all across our state to get a first-hand look at the field of computer science and coding." He says skill sets in science, technology, engineering and math will "prove invaluable" as Indiana’s tech sector continues to grow.
The Hour of Code is part of National Computer Science Education Week. The effort spans more than 180 countries, reaching tens of millions of students.
Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann and Indianapolis-based Nextech will host an Hour of Code event Monday at the Statehouse. WorkOne is also organizing events throughout the state, including three in Indianapolis in partnership with Eleven Fifty.
