Programming Playground, a Friday middle school elective, is a fun space for students to “pursue passion projects in programming, coding, and making,” says instructor and BHDS director of technology Nicholas Cole-Farrell. This new elective allows students to work individually or in small groups on projects that meet their interests. These interests can range from Python and Java Script, to designing websites, creating apps, and taking apart computer hardware.
Says sixth grader Gregory L., “I created a soccer quiz for Python and I really like programming and working with computers.” Another student, 8th grader Avram R., adds, “I like the freedom of this class. You can pick what you want to do and if you need help, Mr. Cole-Farrell is here to help.” MORE PHOTOS
