We are a Canadian not for profit organization dedicated to empowering kids, teachers and parents with the skills we all need to thrive in a technology driven society. We believe that coding is a basic literacy as important as reading, writing or math. By teaching kids how to code we teach them how to be better thinkers and better creators in a digital world.
We introduce computational thinking, computational creativity and computer programming to students in Canadian schools and in community centers. We use intuitive open source, free tools like Scratch and Trinket that work well in a classroom setting. Our Education Development Plan follows children from 5 to 12 years old. Our education materials ensure that children assimilate learning from one stage to the next.
We partner with teachers (k-12) who are interested in weaving code into their language, arts, math and technology curriculum. We volunteer in the classroom, direct teachers to proven educational resources, and organize Teacher Training workshops. We present at universities, to educators, researchers and education students from around the world.
We engage with communities through our Code Create & Play workshops, where we allow children to explore their creativity with code. Workshops include: Code & Games, Story-telling, Virtual Reality, Raspberry Pi’s and Arduino’s. We teach computer programming in libraries, community centres, and other public spaces. Parents are key in helping us bring computer programming into the schools.
