Learning to code is like learning how to speak and write a new language, and it's a good skill to have in the marketplace. According to code.org, 58% of all new jobs in Idahoare in computing. So learning to code will increase your child's odds of securing a lucrative STEM career. 

Join us for a conversation about a new program that will bring learning how to code into the K-12 system. On Idaho Matters are Peter Rissee, the Associate Dean of Extended Studies at Boise State University and Mark Woychick, the Director of Programs for the College of Innovation and Design. 

Correction: originally we attributed Mark Woychicks title incorrectly. He is the Director of Programs for the College of Innovation and Design.
