Hour of Code 2016!

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.

K-010 and Studio in the School

K-010 had their first session with our art residency, Studio in the School. We learned about many different kinds of art tools. We also focused on different kinds of strokes. We can make fat, skinny, long, short, straight, curved and zig zag lines depending on how we hold our brush. We worked in small groups to practice all of the strokes we learned about.
