About this event

Celebrate Science Literacy Week by building your own game in Scratch!

Join Kids Code Jeunesse and kids from across Canada for a free online coding workshop to celebrate Science Literacy Week 2021. Celebrating the Canadian book, Nibi’s Water Song by Sunshine Tenasco, kids will code a narrative game that explores the universal need for clean drinking water and how individuals can make a difference in the fight against climate change. The project will use foundational Scratch coding skills as a tool to celebrate themes like perseverance, community, and the beauty of protecting Canada’s natural environments.

Who is this workshop for?

Canadian kids aged 8 - 12 who are curious about coding, literature and our climate! Beginner-friendly with no previous coding experience required.

What materials do I need to take part?

  • A stable connection to the internet
  • A laptop, chromebook or computer (no tablets/ipads)
  • A webcam is recommended but not required

About Science Literacy Week

Science Literacy Week showcases the many ways kids and families can explore and enjoy the diversity of Canadian science. Libraries, museums, science centres, schools and not-for-profits come together to highlight the books, movies, podcasts and events that share exciting stories of the science, discoveries and ingenuity shaping our lives. It’s about each and everyone’s unique relationship with science and how they live it.

This workshop is offered free of charge through funding from NSERC's PromoScience program.
