“For most people on Earth, the digital revolution hasn’t even started yet. Within the next 10 years, all that will change. Let’s get the whole world coding!” – Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google
During Computer Science Week, many will hear about schools taking part in the Hour of Code… An Hour of Code? At MFS our youngest students code throughout the year and they love it. Come see for yourself!
The Moorestown Friends School Beginnings Early Childhood Program is hosting Coding Sneak Peek Week from December 5-9.
This is an opportunity for parents of young children to visit MFS and observe and participate in Coding classes at the Preschool, Prekindergarten, and Kindergarten levels. Children are welcome to attend, too!
Moorestown Friends School is one of the only schools in the United States to offer a Coding program to all Lower School students – Preschool through Grade 4. The program also extends into Grade 5. This innovative program has three strands: coding, problem-solving, and teamwork. These skills will be in high demand as the 21st century progresses. So whether your child becomes a doctor, chemist, theatrical set designer, librarian, lawyer, or computer programmer, (s)he will be equipped with valuable computational thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork skills developed from an early age.
