Event Details

This is a beginner level workshop

Whether it’s in books, on billboards or even on our food labels, graphic design is everywhere!

In this hands-on learning experience, kids will be introduced to application called Canva, an online graphic design application that helps designers create beautiful work. Kids with an artistic and creative passion will love exploring their skills in a technological way, and will get to discuss how their favourite logos and images were designed and created!

Kids will also have the opportunity to animate their design of choice using Scratch, a beginner level programming environment. They will also be introduced to Scratch's amazing online community, sloganed: "Imagine, Program, Share," where they will have the opportunity to upload their projects to share with others.

By the end of the workshop, kids will have learned how to compose elements in visually engaging ways, and experiment with typography and colour theory. Canva’s easy-to-use interface will also encourage kids to continue creating and experimenting outside of the workshop.

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 4:1 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. Thus, 50% of tickets will be reserved for boys and 50% for girls. 

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.”
