 Brown Bag Seminar #9: 
Scratch Computer Programming
 scratch
On April 4th, Wantagh alumni Peter Mountanos and Dan Charytonowicz taught fourth grade students Scratch, an interactive computer program which introduces children to coding. Developed for children by MIT, Scratch allows the user to create interactive games, stories, and animations.  We thank Mr. Mountanos, a member of the Wantagh BOE, and Mr. Charytonowicz for introducing our children to the wonderful world of computer coding!
