Mondays

Students will work with a variety of coding apps and programs, including Little Codr, LightBot, Osmo, Scratch, Tynker and Pear-y, our Dash robot.

Each class will be guided but students will apply problem solving skills and work either in small groups or teams to work through challenges. Students are not required to bring a device.

It is not a requirement for students to have participated in our previous coding enrichment courses.

Tuesdays

Kids Can Cook 2 (Ages 5-10) 4-5pm

This course is an extension of the Kids Can Cook course from term 1.

Wednesdays

Photography 101 (Ages 5-10) 4-5pm

Spring is a perfect time to go outdoors in Kitsilano and practice basic photography techniques!
