Canada Learning Code Week


Join thousands of Canadians across the country to celebrate Canadian History with coding lessons!

Over the course of the week, we've invited Canadians to gather in schools, libraries, friendship centres, museums, and other community places to learn about and celebrate the history of Canada.

On July 1st, we will reveal a digital scrapbook collection of student projects that celebrate Canada’s 150 years - reimagined through the eyes of our youth.

Join us in Sudbury on June 3rd for this special Canada Learning Code Week Event and join thousands of Canadians celebrating Canadian history with Code!

We'll be hosting 4 lessons! Join us for 1, 2, 3 or all 4!


First Lesson - Canada Takes Flight

10:00am - 11:30am
In this lesson, you will create a game exploring the history of flight in Canada! The game includes a gravity effect to simulate the wind that could steer the plane off course. After completing the game, learners can reflect on how science, technology, engineering, and math have helped Boeing innovate and how they can tap into their own creative abilities through code.


Second Lesson - Doodle For Google

11:30am - 1:00pm
Get creative and explore the possibilities of animation and digital art in this special Doodle for Google Lesson. In this lesson, learners will test their creative limits by expressing what Canada means to them and how they imagine it will look in the next 150 years. They’ll also get the chance to showcase their final creation on the Google.com homepage! 


Third Lesson - Code Your Own Sports Game

1:00pm - 2:30pm
Building games is just one of the cool things that programmers do everyday! With this lesson, you can code JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S HOCKEY GAME! You’ll practice ordering steps in a sequence that can be easily repeated and extending a sports-themed game. He found a fun way to make the game go crazy at the end - see if you can too!


Fourth Lesson - Canadarm2
2:30pm  4:00pm
The Canadarm marked the beginning of Canada’s role in the Space Shuttle Program and is an invaluable component of the International Space Station. In this lesson learners will explore the Canadarm’s role in space and will use the If/Then/Else statements in Scratch to program the Canadarm to collect incoming modules. 

What is Kids Learning Code? 
Founded by the same women who introduced Ladies Learning Code and Girls Learning Code in 2012, Kids Learning Code is less about “code” and more about changing the world – through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, technology, while leveraging team diversity. 

What Makes Kids Learning Code Different? 
Kids Learning Code has been designed specifically with gender diversity in mind. Like Girls Learning Code, these workshops are beginner-friendly, hands-on and fun. Our 3:1 ratio of kids to mentors will be maintained with balanced numbers of male and female mentors. We believe that if we want to encourage more girls to enter the field of technology, we need to help boys and girls learn to work in technical environments together effectively. 

When developing plans and curriculum for our workshops, we keep in mind a recurrent theme in research on gender and technology: girls approach the computer as a “tool” useful primarily for what it can do; boys more often view the computer as a “toy” or an extension of the self. Thus, technology is used as the means, not the end. same opportunity as her sister.”

“This was a great iniative that is needed to encourage females to become leaders in computer technology field. It was inspiring for my daughter to visit Google, to see a modern office space, to see a bilingual women in a leading position at Google. This camp provided a perspective to girls that they not only can play and use technology, they can design, create and become leaders in technology.”

“My daughter had a blast, the other campers were a great bunch of girls, they learned, grew and had fun. The venue was well chosen, the balance of activities was good. The extra little touches of caring were noticable and appreciated. The camp was down to earth and unpretentious but the counsellors took their jobs seriously. A+. I will recommend to other parents.”
