Code for America – Full STEaM Ahead!


Our students visited the Neustar offices on March 2, 2016. A group of engineers within the company hosted an “Hour of Code”– an introduction to programming and technology to get youth interested in the STEM fields. Our students worked in pairs and learned to code using JavaScript. They created applications that told jokes, a greeter program that asked the user their name, and even a Magic 8 Ball application! Our students rose to the challenge and were able to reach mastery. At the end, we took a tour around the offices, got some snacks, and played a bit of ping pong with the engineers.
