More than 2,000 students in all five Madison County middle schools are doing their part in building Kentucky’s highly skilled workforce in one of the most sought after career fields, computer science. This week the students took part in the Hour of Code, a nationwide effort to expose students early to computer coding.
Madison County’s principals and teachers say exposing their students early to coding will spark their interest and prompt them to learn even more in high school and college.
Here’s a look at how this program is already paying off.
