Go to Code For Kids Homepage

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:

Ruby offers a first chance look at the internals of programming.

By learning the basics of how to program, including the use of basic programming structures, kids will build on our "Building on the Fundamentals" class to use what they learned before, and put it to use.

This is a third level course. It is recommended that the "Building on the fundamentals" class is completed prior to this course.

We will provide all materials, as well as snacks and drinks. Please bring a laptop if you can.

Please register multiple children one at a time
