Kids Code Jeunesse and LEARN are offering two remote beginner computer programming courses IN ENGLISH for children between the ages of 7-12 who are in the English school system in Quebec (public, private, home schooled). Children will require a computer and Internet connection at home to access the virtual classroom where a trained computer programmer will teach a small group of children to code. A headset is also recommended.

Registration is open to students attending English public and private schools in Quebec.

Sessions starting MAY 7th are FULL. Registration for additional courses as well as our summer session will be available shortly.
