Summer Program: A Huge Success

“At first, I didn’t understand the connection between dancing and coding; then I realized, music videos, everything is coding.”

STEM from Dance is so proud of the girls who participated in our summer program at Achievement First. Our students learned to code their movement with ProcessingJS and had a blast while doing it!

SFD was proud to partner with CommonBond and Palantir. Our girls learned so much from their corporate visits and were inspired to see STEM in action in the workplace!
