Behringer-Harvard and Junkins team up
To support our mission of providing a supportive culture for the twenty-first century learner to reach their academic destination and become productive citizens of the world, Jerry Junkins Elementary has partnered with Behringer-Harvard in launching a Coding Club for the 4th and 5th grade students. The Behringer-Harvard IT staff members meet every week with our students teach them how to code. In the spring semester, students will be applying their programming/coding skills to robots. We are so fortunate to have Behringer’s support in making our vision a reality. Our students are on their way to being equipped with the skills necessary to contribute to our evolving tech-driven society.
