A lot happens on our software—students have fun, they smile, they laugh, they grow. Parents appreciate the skills being learned. Companies build community, gain bragging rights and party at our Showcase Galas.
We've had many students compete in computer programming competitions like the Canadian Computing Competition and weekend teenage hackathons—and come out on top.
But, our business is in teaching and learning, and as we've been very busy learning about how students learn computer programming, we haven't been very good about keeping tabs on individual stories. We're trying to change that, slowly collecting stories that have come back to us over the years, and being faster to share current ones.
So, some recent tales are posted on this page; more will join them. We're starting a couple of blog series too, just to keep you informed about what we have experienced since we started this journey. We are humbled by the spirit of learning that is emerging, and the parents and youths who support it. We are also grateful for every conversation we have with companies who are assuming the responsibility for helping to spread the word about a subject they are not experts in—for the sake of future workforce readiness. And we are excited for Computer Science teachers: adopting the fourth R will make them into creative coding experts, and we can't wait to see what that will bring.
