For the second year in a row PS 54 The Magnet School for Environmental Science, TECHNOLOGY, and Community Wellness participated in CodeBrooklyn’s Our of Code Challenge. In 2015, the Brooklyn Borough President and co-founder of CodeBrooklyn, Eric L. Adams, challenged Brooklyn to the audacious goal of reaching out to EVERY Brooklyn public school to encourage them to do an “Hour of Code” event. Over 380 Brooklyn schools, of the 500 in the borough, participated! (See the video of our CodeBrooklyn Hour of Code challenge from 2015). This was the highest rate of participation of any large urban area in the country.
Students in grades 3-5 at PS 54 took up Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adam’s challenge.
