Students across the province can now access coding workshops through Keep Learning BC.

The Education Ministry is offering the free, live workshops to help students aged nine and up learn how to code—creating websites, online games, and art, among other things.

“Students need programs that will lead to 21st-century careers,” said Education Minister Rob Fleming. “With new access to live, weekly workshops from across the country through Canada Learning Code, BC students can expand their coding education, while learning from experts through real-time programs designed for specific age groups that will help engage young minds.”

Canada Learning Code will also host a virtual coding conference this summer.

“We’ve reimagined our popular in-person learning experiences to create live online classes that are optimized for project-based, highly collaborative and interactive learning opportunities,” said CEO Melissa Sariffodeen. “At each workshop, there is a team of instructors to help youth discover the power of technology to solve problems and become builders—not just consumers of technology.”

New coding workshops are added each week and can be accessed through the Keep Learning BC website at: https://www.openschool.bc.ca/keeplearning/ or directly at: https://www.canadalearningcode.ca/live-online/
