Microbit Masters: High School Students Help Elementary School Students Learn Coding


For the second year now, the Microbits Masters program has brought together high school computer science students to teach coding and robotics to younger learners. 

Springbrook High School students recently visited Burnt Mills Elementary to introduce coding to a group of eager fifth graders. 

The Microbits Masters Program started with a partnership with Boolean Girls through a grant from GEICO. The older students design and create the lessons that they bring to teach the elementary school students. 

“It is a really good experience to be able to work with the kids and help them learn code because I know this is going to be the next generation,” said high school student Oliver. “They are going to be people in this room that grow up and learn code and get into the industry.

The program is currently offered at Springbrook and Paint Branch High Schools.
