We have POWER in Northview Heights in the Future Code Project
From Northview Heights, Keith Murphy led a project to stimulate learning among children at Bethany House Academy by using Puzzlets, a hands-on interactive coding game that has 120+ applications, to expose preschool children and elementary school youth to a higher level of digital literacy. Participants engaged in individual and peer-to-peer learning modules designed to promote greater understanding of coding and use of iPad/iMac interactive processes for 2 hours a week during the school year and 4 hours a week during the summer program.
“Our agency is committed to helping all the children we serve be ‘Promise Ready,’” said project leader Keith Murphy. “We see this project as another step toward guiding children who live in Northview Heights towards excelling in math and science.”
