MONTCLAIR — Ten New Jersey students with autism are the recipients of scholarships designed to further their skills and education in the fundamentals of computer coding and web and game design.
The NXT GEN Coders Program is made possible through a grant from Autism Speaks and GameStop. The students are connected to it through Montclair-based Yukōdit, which since 2016 has endeavored to give New Jerseyans more exposure to the ever-evolving world of computer science.
