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!

INTRO TO CODING

Learn the basics of coding, game design, and robotics in a fun and interactive environment. No prior coding experience is required.

 

Other topics offered:

  • Scratch: Become a digital story-teller! Scratch teaches even the youngest students how to create stories, games and animation through computer coding.  

  • Python: This is a widely used, general purpose programming language that uses words to help you code in less time, with fewer lines of code. Python has support for turtle graphics and other modules that make coding fun and colourful.
