Coding Up a Storm

From the national Code-Mobile visiting us to the Hour of Code… Code-inspiration is moving throughout James Kennedy School. Thanks to Code-Mobilsters Matt and Carling for sharing with our intermediates the wonderful world of Scratch! As well as our talented Saju Abraham from Left of the Dot came to share his expertise with our young coders. This is definitely a wonderful time of the year!
