How we teach coding & robotics
We provide in-person and virtual workshops, both simple and advanced activities, and resources so teachers and students can carry on independently.
Equity, diversity, and inclusion
We serve each and every student with coding projects that are culturally relevant, gender-appropriate, and accessible for self-directed learning.
Inspire & engage through Tinkquiry
"Tinkquiry" is the creative blend of 'tinkering' and 'inquiry'! Learners tinker with coding while being inquisitive, passionate, and goal-directed.
Offered in multiple languages
LYNX Coding & Your Voice is Power are available in English, French, and multiple Indigenous languages: Anishinaabe, Mi'kmaw, Kanien'kéha, Inuktitut and Oji-Cree.
It is with the support of our partners that Code To Learn can inspire youth across the country to use technology to engage with social issues.
Your Voice is Power
Your Voice is Power is a national competition for middle and high school students designed to teach the fundamentals of computer science, entrepreneurship, and social justice.
Using the EarSketch platform, students get creative to remix songs from Indigenous artists and use what they have learned from the provided course outline.
Students will remix songs from 3 Indigenous artists—Dakota Bear, Jayli Wolf, and Samian—while taking inspiration from the social justice themes demonstrated in their work.
