“BUFFALO, N.Y. — Learning how to code and program technology can sound like a foreign language to many, but for 10 freshmen at Health Sciences Charter School, they now have a better understanding with the world of STEM and programming and coding.

With the help of Bak USA and Thimble, students learned how to program any of 12 mini-projects, like a doorbell or nightlight.

And during the workshop, students learn what types of careers this technology can be applied to, inspiring them to continue learning with this technology.”
