Jennifer's grant was used to purchase a set of iPads for Technology 9 to work with Apple’s Learn to Code curriculum. This will further strengthen the scope and sequence of our Technology Program in the Upper School.

This grant provides a computer science foundation for all ninth graders, regardless of their future pursuits in technology-related courses. Click here to read her full proposal.
