The NII Explore Coding in the Classroom program helps students learn foundational skills like coding, which are critical to working in a digital economy.
Classes are designed to complement grade 2-8 curriculum goals like patterns, problem-solving and early literacy. In this way, sessions are relatable and cohesive to what students are already learning in class.
This is a new way of learning that will help students broaden their range and give them the confidence to try something different!
