BHGH scholars visited Yammer today for the Hour of Code, which is a one-hour introduction to computer science. Cristina Akimoff first gave the scholars a tour of the company and then introduced them to their instructors. With the assistance of two Yammer engineers, Gonzalo Maldonado and Isura Edirisinghe, the scholars learned to code their very first computer game using Scratch.
Our vitally important 20th Anniversary fundraiser had to be postponed indefinitely, at a time when funds are needed more than ever. Our scholars and their families are being seriously impacted by the restrictions and closures in the Bay Area! But in this time of challenge our work continues. Our team has shifted its focus to intensive virtual case management and interactive online learning. We are on when school is out, and a critical source of stability and opportunity. Please consider a generous gift to help our vitally important work!
