Building on Microsoft’s recent announcement to invest $75 million in community programs to increase access to computer science education for all youth worldwide, Microsoft Canada is launching the #codegeneration movement – to inspire Canadian youth (13 -18 year olds) to learn more about coding. #codegeneration will run from now until Computer Science Education Week (December 7-13).
Join the Movement!
Help us spread the word and teach Canadian youth to create with technology. Anyone can code, it’s simple and easy.
- Coding Challenges: For the next five weeks, Microsoft will be issuing coding challenges at www.CodeGeneration.ca. Students who complete these weekly challenges will have the chance to win points towards prizes while learning the basics of coding; and parents and teachers can find resources to help them lead students in these challenges themselves.
- “Hour of Code” Sessions: As a founding corporate supporter of Code.org, Microsoft is offering free Preparation Webinars with live chat for questions and answers on November 24 and December 1. Ready to hold your own Hour of Code with your students – download your toolkit today and lead them through a Minecraft tutorial. Or schedule a field trip to a local Microsoft Retail Stores during Computer Science Education Week to give young developers the opportunity to learn coding. For more info, please visit the In-Store event section at a store near you.
