Students at Harborfields High School, Oldfield Middle School, Washington Drive Primary School and Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School are still getting their weekly dose of STEM learning opportunities.
Thanks to a collaborative effort by Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum Instruction and Administration Dr. Rory manning and teachers Jennifer Washington and Drew Lockwood, the students have been tasked with weekly challenges on KidOYO – an educational platform used to teach students creative computing and coding.
Some of the challenges have encouraged students to create animated rainbows while others have challenged students to program and design E-cards using inspirational quotes, digital confetti and songs.
While a new challenge will be posted each week, students will still be able to access past challenges for a chance to earn badges, which are displayed on the KidOYO leaderboard.
“I thought that it would be nice, especially during this time, to spread some positivity across the district,” Ms. Washington said.
