SCHOOL IS OUT BUT KIDS CODE JEUNESSE KEEPS KIDS & EDUCATORS BUSY ALL SUMMER LONG WITH FUN-FILLED EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES ACROSS CANADA

Building on the successes of the Code Create Teach national workshop series and an incredible growth of Code Clubs across the country, Kids Code Jeunesse (KCJ) is proud to announce a summer lineup filled with entertaining activities for children and their educators all throughout Canada!

Dedicated to inspiring through computational thinking, KCJ believes the most sustainable, long-term impact is its integration into many different aspects of a child’s environment. By connecting code through education, art, sport, science, play, or health within various communities, KCJ continues to empower Canadian children to become better thinkers and better creators throughout the summer months!

As part of its mission to make coding experiences accessible to all Canadians, KCJ is participating in free events (Kensington’s Fantasy Faire in Calgary, Charlottetown’s Art in the Open festival, and CBC Kids Day in Toronto, among others) to offer entertaining and engaging opportunities that break down the barriers and change the perspectives of youth and parents regarding play and technology.

KCJ encourages children, parents, and educators to learn and engage together —offering them equal opportunities to become contributors (and not just consumers!) of technology—through the following public events this summer:
