Holcomb joins students for computer coding trainingDecember 6, 2017
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb hosted roughly 100 students at a Statehouse event highlighting the importance of high-tech skills.
The Republican joined children from Brown County and the Indianapolis area for an “Hour of Code” exercise Tuesday, which offered a crash course in computer coding.
Indiana has long been a manufacturing-intensive state. But technological change and cheaper labor abroad has led to a decline in those good-paying jobs.
Studies now show many lack the education needed for the high-paying work that’s available.
Holcomb told students that 60 percent of the jobs that will be available when they graduate do not yet exist. He says that’s why students today should learn skills that will prepare them for the future.
