Code For Kids is a program that was started from an idea in early spring of 2013. At the time, we had no other programs like it. It was a one of a kind (for the most part). Over the years, Code For Kids has grown and we have had so many wonderful experiences teaching kids across Central Canada.

Over the course of the last 2 years, Code For Kids has touched the lives of over 600 kids through more than 30 events, as well as months of dedicated one-on-one tutoring in Ottawa. We will never forget the joy it gave us to watch young girls and boys figuring out tricky problems, creating new things and having fun. We watched them struggle through their frustration to develop amazing and interesting things. We will never forget the pride that our participants had in their accomplishments. We thank you for helping us to succeed in inspiring kids to code.

Over the past few years, we have had a number of helping hands, and we really appreciated all the help. Moving forward, we have lost many of those valuable resources as they have moved on to other things. For that reason, Code For Kids is saying farewell; happy in the knowledge that we have inspired and helped to raise awareness in the importance of teaching coding to the next generation. We leave you with a list of resources for your use:

Why I Inspire Kids With Code

Posted on - by Lucas Marcelli

My name is Lucas Marcelli, and I'm the Managing Director here at Code For Kids.

My dear brother went to University for IT. I had always been interested in computer programming, because I wanted to make video games like Half Life, so when I saw his textbook that said "Java 1.4: The Essentials" I asked him if he could teach me.

His response was to hand me the textbook and say "Have fun!"

A friendly hello!

Posted on - by Matt Tanner

Hello everyone - I'm Matt. I've recently joined the Code For Kids team to help out as its Marketing Manager. That means I'll be helping to promote and build the Code For Kids brand as we seek world domi... erm... code inspiration.

My interests have always been in digital. One summer, when I was about 11 or 12, I had the choice of going to a summer camp or doing something otherwise productive with my time. That's when I decided to learn HTML.
