On Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019, and Friday, Nov. 22, 2019, students from Lower Merion High School's Computer Science department visited Bala Cynwyd Middle School to introduce Python programming to the sixth, seventh and eighth grade computer classes.
The students practiced problem-solving skills and learned the foundations of coding, while creating interesting doodles.
The middle-schoolers wrote programs that drew a square, the Olympic rings, their names and a city skyline.
The students also learned that troubleshooting is an important part of computer programming as they worked through debugging their codes.
All of the participants are looking forward to their next collaboration, set for December.

LMSD's Strategic Plan, "All Forward," provides a framework for a collective, intentional and positive approach to change. Its five aspirational pathways guide us toward continual innovation and transformation to further educational excellence for every student. The coding partnership between the high school and middle school computer programs is an example of Strategic Pathway #3: Transformative Curriculum and Strategic Pathway #4: Student-Driven Schools.
