Montana Code Girls joins new White House initiative for computer education

September 18, 2016View for printing

Montana Code Girls joined more than 200 organizations across the country this week in committing to expand after-school programs for girls, helping them gain better access to an education in computer science.

Devin B. Holmes, founder of Montana Code Girls http://www.bigskycodeacademy.org/montanacodegirls and the Big Sky Code Academy http://www.bigskycodeacademy.org , said the commitment pairs with a new White House effort and President Barack Obama's #CSforAll initiative.

"In his 2016 State of the Union address, President Obama challenged the nation to offer 'every student hands-on computer science and math classes,' and Montana Code Girls is doing it," said Holmes. "We're excited to be part of the nationwide response to the president's broad call to action to expand computer science education in K-12 classrooms."
