Cornell's Halloween Hackathon at PS 217

Last Friday 70 Cornell Tech graduate students headed over to PS/IS217 for "Let’s Code RI," a Halloween-inspired Hackathon. Cornell Tech’s student volunteers worked with selected PS/IS217 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students on spooky, Halloween-themed coding projects using the coding language Scratch.
