Every Monday at 4PM, a group of Columbia grad students meet with students at Democracy Prep Harlem High School to help them learn about computer programming. The club, which began last year on Zoom, also helps the students learn about college and professional options available to them after high school, and allows them to connect with the tutors as mentors. https://news.columbia.edu/news/tutoring-program-harlem-high-school-students-breaks-out-zoom

During the pandemic, a group of Columbia graduate students launched the Physics and Coding Club at Democracy Prep Harlem High School. A year later, they’ve left the virtual world of Zoom to gather in real rooms for the first time.
