Hour of Code @ Danforth.  Our Computer Science MaST students welcomed a group of Grade 8 students from D. A. Morrison MS in December 2013 to experience coding some for the first time! They had the opportunity to be introduced to computer science with hope to ignite their aspiration to continue to develop this skill. 
A group of Danforth’s female MaST students attended the Girls' Computer Coding Conference at Nelson Mandela in April 2014.  The conference followed the lead of Ladies Learning Code.  Our MaST students mentored 35 students (grades 6-8) as they were introduced to the programing language Ruby.
