“Once kids see that they can actually use coding to change things that matter to them – from building a website to hacking your phone apps – they move to coder and innovator quickly,” said Jigar Jadav, Computer Science teacher at Mamaroneck High School.

Following December, the Mamaroneck High School plans to expand after-school offerings involving code.

This technology can be applied by users as young as children in kindergarten age through Scratch programming.
