MISSOULA -

A Montana program designed to get high schools students interested in computer science is seeing lots of popularity.

Greg Gianforte announced the CodeMontana program at the Economic Jobs Summit in Butte, setting the goal of recruiting 1,000 students. Just five months later they've reached that goal. Now Gianforte plans to serve 5,000 students.

CodeMontana classes are being taught in 140 communities throughout the state. Montana Tech is now offering scholarships for students who complete the program.
