The NW Saturday Academy is a new math, computer science and robotics program for DC youth and we are happy to announce that it will be hosted at our own Shepherd Elementary School beginning in February. Third, fourth and fifth grade students will learn computer coding by creating alterations, or “mods”, for the popular game Minecraft, boost their math acumen through study in a blended learning model class and get an introduction to the creativity and fun of engineering by building Lego robots. For more information about the program, please visit us at www.nwsadc.com.
