10,000HoursMT

An "all hands on deck" initiative to deliver 10,000 hours of computer programming education to Montana's K-12 students. 10000HoursMT is both an IRB approved research study to evaluate educator's use of and access to resources for computer programming education, and a grassroots movement to mobilize mentors, educators, corporations, sources of funding and material and curricular resources to achieve the 10,000 hours goal. This is an all-inclusive program, it does not single out any one population for an educational opportunity, but it does seek to define and deliver computer programming education modules that will best serve the diverse students in grades K-12 in Montana.
