The following grant recipients will each receive $1,000 to further computer science education:

“I’m so proud of these five schools and all of the educators across the state of Indiana as they are continuously pushing to elevate  computer science in their schools. The tremendous response to this grant program and the amazing Hour of Code activity that took place was nothing short of inspiring,” stated Karen Jung, President of Nextech.

Indiana continues to rank above the national average for computer science education and is one of five states to adopt the Code.org policies to make CS fundamental, which includes a comprehensive set of K-12 CS standards.  Jung continued, “Our mission is to unleash student potential for the ever-evolving digital economy, and we have provided the tools and training for over 200 schools and 1,500 educators across 19,000 professional development hours.  The future for Indiana and our students is very bright.”
