The Greater Knox Coding Academy at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College announced Thursday in a news release a new, “state-of-the-art” learning space.
The lab, on the college’s main campus, was made possible through a $250,000 grant awarded to the Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Board from the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.
“The generosity and support of the community has been essential to the success of the Greater Knox Coding Academy,” said Juston Pate, ECTC president in the release. “That is most evident in the grant awarded to the academy by the development cabinet. We can’t thank them enough for contributing.”
Students who attend the coding academy will learn on equipment and software that reflects current and future standards in the coding industry, said ECTC’s program coordinator Steve Bratcher.
“The 17-week coding academy is intensive,” Bratcher said. “This new, customized lab is the perfect environment for students to study, learn and reach their full potential.”
