I am a huge advocate for kids coding and I have tried to go out of my way to get my kids into programs to encourage their interest in it. All over Canada there are great places putting on great coding programs for kids and over in Toronto Code-it Hacks is doing just that.
Bringing coding education to kids all over Toronto in a approachable and fun to learn way! With great small class sizes, to help your kids get that one on one time they need to get the most out of a coding camp, your kids are destined to flourish.
Code-it Hacks has lots of great programs available for kids of all ages and your kids will even get the chance to grow to be involved in their mentorship opportunities. Giving them a chance to share their knowledge with younger kids with a love for programming and all things coding. During their time at camp they even build up a portfolio perfect for adding to their school applications later in their school careers if coding is something they really want to pursue.
Encouraging your child’s interests in a fun way that boosts their self esteem is exactly what they need to blossom that long lasting passion. The world of programming and coding will forever be booming for years to come with all the advancements our world is making and wanting to be apart of it is only natural. Especially for my boys who have big dreams of video game development or youtube stardom.
In case you aren’t sure if your kids would be interested, for those of you in Toronto Milton area, Code-it Hacks is offering a free workshop for children ages 8 – 12 to experience the fun of coding. The two and a half hour workshop will enable kids to be part of our play based STEM program. Kids will think they are playing games and chit chatting but in fact they will be learning coding concepts and developing their own animation with coding.
What: Code-it Hacks welcomes YOU to coding workshop! Feel free to bring a child! We will be learning about computers, play games, design and journal our ideas for animating our characters and of course code it to bring it to life!
