COVID-19 Resources

The outbreak of COVID-19 has catapulted all our communities into unchartered territory, leaving us all to grapple with unprecedented changes to everyday life.  to protect and keep students, staff, and families safe, Indiana has mandated school closures until May 1st.

Nextech’s mission is to create equitable access computer science curriculum and experiences for all K-12 Indiana students and we want to do whatever we can to support teachers, students and families any way we can through these difficult times.

Tech Tuesdays

Making a difference in a student’s educational experience is not a challenge left only in the hands of a licensed educator. Guest speakers bring resources to the table many teachers can’t—real-world experiences to help middle and high school students bridge the gap from what they are learning in the classroom to its applicability in the real world.

Join Nextech each Tuesday and hear firsthand from a technology professional - from across all industries - to better understand how CS topics learned in the classroom are being used in the real world.

Who: Any 6-12 student interested in learning more about computer science jobs and careers.

Where: Virtually at our zoom meeting!

When: Every Tuesday at 11AM Eastern
