On Thursday, December 10th in partnership with the Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adam's Office, Flatiron Health sent 21 volunteers to the Brooklyn Brownstone School for Hour of Code.
Our own student techs Malcolm, Alexander, and Christopher led by Mr. Chandler created a dynamic schedule for volunteers. Flatiron asked if our techs were available to intern at the company this summer.
The most valuable part of the visit for our school was when the Flatiron volunteers were able to fix a technology issue that we have had since September. The volunteers willingness to go beyond the scope of Hour of Code means that our students can fully utilize our Scholastic Read 180 program. We were so happy that the students broke out in applause and the teachers began to dance when informed.
Our students enjoyed having "computer techs" teach about internet safety and to code with Scratch Jr. We 'd like to thank Flatiron Health for their commitment to bringing technology alive at the Brooklyn Brownstone School.
TBBS is fortunate to have our wonderful music teacher, Mrs. Cole. Mrs. Cole's area of expertise is musical theater however, she ensures that our students receive a well rounded music education that includes instruments. Jazz Musician Stanley Banks, bassist, stop by and was kind enough give our students some pointers.
Johan van Lierop, TBBS parent and musician, volunteered on Saturday to give a small percussion workshop to our aspiring drummers.
The students were grateful for the opportunity work with these talented professionals. Thank you Mr. Banks and Mr. van Lierop
