Astoria school wins citywide Hack League
Middle school students from the Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria won a citywide Hack League last month – and was later recognized by their local state senator.
State Senator Gianaris presented a resolution to the school team, which developed an app to fight pollution. The app was built on the Swift platform.
Students from all district middle and high schools were invited to participate in this year’s Hack League, a program that’s part of the Computer Science for All initiative.
Participants use computer science concepts and open data from their school neighborhoods to solve problems affecting their communities.
About 1,700 students from all five boroughs participated in the Hack League.
