A public elementary and middle school has teamed up with a local college to deliver professional development to help teachers add computer science activities into their curriculum. Roosevelt Island Public School, a K-8 school, will begin working with Cornell Tech, a graduate school, to help deliver tech education to children in the New York City area. Teachers have already received a six-week introduction to computer science. And the two schools have co-hosted an event to introduce families of Roosevelt Island PS to the program and lay out the concepts their children would be learning. As part of that, family members took a coding workshop and learned how to create a holiday-themed game.
