Governor Little and other leaders launch Idaho Codes

 

Gov. Brad Little and a consortium of industry, government, and education leaders launched Idaho Codes, an online computer science course to teach junior high and high school students statewide how to build websites and develop apps.

Idaho students in grades 7-12 can now access “Coding Foundations,” a course that offers 120 hours of self-paced, professional-grade CS curriculum that teaches them how to code, with no experience is required.

Students have access to instructional videos 24/7, online mentor support, and a variety of benchmarks, including quizzes, projects, and a final exam.

Those who complete the course can earn high school and/or college credits and secure mentorship opportunities.

The first 1,200 students to register will also get the $200 fee waived.

Head to IdahoCodes.org to register.

There is no custom code to display.
