  • My Class Needs Coding Kits to Learn coding

    Launched November 27th, 2017 Project Deadline March 23rd, 2018
    Classroom Size 30 Students School Size 450 Students

    My Students

    Our students will learn how to interpret code and mathematical concepts and use logical thinking to build robotic structures.

    How will this project impact them?

    As educators, we recognize the critical role we play in ensuring that all students are equipped with the mathematical capabi​lities essential for participation in society. Students have indicated that the mathematics they learn in class needs to be relevant and useful for everyday life and connected to real-life problems. District, provincial and international assessment results in mathematics consistently indicate the need to focus on thinking, application and problem solving skills. It is our aim to use coding and robotics to enhance problem solving and thinking skills in our students.
