Kids Exploring Coding

Kindergarten and 2nd Grade Students had the opportunity to explore coding through fun and interactive activities! Students were instructed to program a device to meet a specific goal or challenge. They had lots of fun troubleshooting, working together, and getting the opportunity to try out some of our new technology!
