Young JFK and RCK Programmers Learn Coding


Students at John F. Kennedy and Ruth C. Kinney schools joined 100 million students in more than 180 countries worldwide to participate in December’s Hour of Code computer programming activity during Computer Science Education Week. All students received a certificate upon completion of an hour of coding.

“It was wonderful to be a part of this global coding activity, and the students loved it and proved to be quite talented in computer programming,” said RCK Principal Hillary K. Bromberg. “They were excited to see how the Blockly system of code made their Minecraft characters move, and were so proud of themselves when they were able to determine what command was needed to complete the tasks. It was also interesting to show them the JavaScript written underneath the Blockly commands they were using.”
