Last week New Rochelle BID’s IDEA New Rochelle initiative linked up with CodeSctyand the New Rochelle High School PTA to teach computational thinking and coding skills to a group of high school students using popular rap music as a learning tool.

Many thanks to Monroe College for providing beautiful learning accommodations for the day, and to CodeScty for the engaging workshop. (Pictures from the event are below; for more in-depth details on the day, please visit this article!)
