LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky science and education leaders have announced an effort to promote the value of computer science education.

The idea is to encourage students to participate in learning computer code through exercises available online and other places. The effort is in conjunction with national Computer Science Education Week Dec. 8 to Dec. 14.

Code.org is sponsoring the Hour of Code global campaign. Representatives of the Kentucky Science and Technology Corp. and Kentucky Department of Education announced Kentucky’s participation on Wednesday during the IdeaFestival in Louisville.

Organizers say coding stations are available daily at the IdeaFestival at the Kentucky Center. The KentuckyCoders.com website is also open to anyone, and the goal is to have 1 million coding activities registered.
