Home to one of the fastest-growing technology industries in the nation, the governor is committed to helping Utah students learn computer programming so they can succeed upon entering the workforce.
“We are stepping up our efforts to teach Utahns the computer skills they need in order to fill the high-tech and high-paying jobs that are already here or are coming to our state, ” said Gov. Herbert.
Beginning this year, Utah students who enroll in AP computer science will receive a core science credit for the course. Students are already required to complete at least one computer technology course to graduate from high school.
The governor encouraged students and teachers around the state to learn to code and declared Dec. 8-14 Computer Science Education Week in Utah.
