At the Upper School morning meeting, students from Advanced Topics II: Coding for a Cause shared their work of building a meal-tracking app for Caritas of Port Chester. The app aims to help Caritas improve its ability to report on and track the number of meals it provides annually. The computer science students also invited the RCDS community to visit the Pinkham Building and view their bulletin board, which highlights businesses that are using technology to solve complex problems like hunger and climate change.
The celebration of Computer Science Education Week continues with a "Lunch and Learn" with Nathanael Burt, a full stack web developer at the sustainable farm Square Roots. Mr. Burt will discuss ethical and human-centered development as well as sustainability. To close out the week, students from the rcdsDev Club will participate in a Hackathon this weekend at Riverdale Country School.
