Northern Coding Academy is a new program providing digital learning opportunities to teachers and underserved students in rural, and high-needs urban areas, and throughout the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.
With funding provided through the Government of Canada’s CanCode program, Northern Coding Academy is designed to equip students with digital skills for the 21st century.
No prior coding experience is needed, and cross-curricular applicants are encouraged - we can incorporate Northern Coding Academy programming into English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Fine Arts, and more!
