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. An article in a recent edition of Harvard Magazine noted that as technological innovations drive virtually every industry and shape social spaces on line, students who have computational knowledge “have a jump-start in access to these careers, and they have insight into the nature of innovation that is changing how we communicate, learn, recreate, and conduct democracy.”
