NYU CS Survey and assessment links:

In Exploring Computer Science our students are introduced to many computer science concepts and it turns out our 7th grade is pretty good at HTML. Check out a few examples:

Solayman                                            Shaine                             Armelle                          Matou

Skylah                                                 Nathaniel                       Verna

Phase 2 Prototyping Proto-a-thon?

PS 129 to represent Manhattan in the city-wide Hack-a-thon!!

Two teams from MS 129 competed in the borough-wide phase 2 of the hack-a-thon competition: prototyping. One team received the award of social awareness while the other received the award user design. One team will be moving on to the city-wide competition for their prototype creation of an app to fight crime.

The Design-a-thon was a great success! We had over 30 middle school presentations!!

And 150 kids participated!

Celebrate CSEdWeek!

John H Finley will participate in Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) from December 3-9, 2018. CSEdWeek is a great opportunity for every student to try computer science (CS)! Middle Schoolers will all have an opportunity to participate in this years hackathon. Elementary classrooms will be participating in an Hour of Code!

Students enrolled in Exploring Computer Science are learning how to think like computer scientists. They are also learning how to use the internet to collaborate on group projects. Check out some of their work here:
