Event Description

2018 has seen Indiana elevate its position as a national leader in K-12 computer science education. In March, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed a bill that would ensure every school in the state offers a computer science course by the 2021 school year. This past summer, Nextech signed a $670,000 contract with the Indiana Department of Education to provide professional development for CS educators across the state. These are just a few of the highlights!

Please join Nextech and our community of friends and partners December 3rd as we celebrate the kickoff of national Computer Science Education Week. The event will be anchored around a conversation on how commitment to K-12 CS education is not only an investment in our community's most valuable natural resources - our students; it is also the investment we must make to ensure we can remain competitive far into the future.
