GASP Python Course Example Projects
Taylor Elementary School, Arlington, VA
Howard Batiste and Jeff Elkner ran an after school Python enrichment class
for 4th and 5th grade students at
Taylor Elementary School in
Arlington, VA. The class met 6 times on Thursday afternoons between October
15 and November 19, 2009.
