“In my visits to schools across Arkansas – large and small, rural and urban, elementary and high school – I have met hundreds of students and teachers whose creativity and enthusiasm have made our state a national leader in computer science education,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson.  “I believe computer-science education can provide unlimited opportunities, which is why I have committed to equipping our students with the right tools that will empower them to become the next leaders in STEM.
