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.
