Our Mission

Our mission is to bring the teaching of computer programming into schools, ensuring that parents are aware of the benefits of coding, and to offer a space where kids can come, learn and create.

To achieve this mission we are currently working with many school around Ottawa for after school and elective programs, we offer parents nights where moms & dads can come learn themselves, and we currently have FREE monthly club events for kids.

 
 

Our Impact

Kids & Code is a non-profit dedicated to expanding the knowledge of computer programming to all school aged children across Canada. We believe that every student should have the opportunity to learn how to code and that this learning should be encouraged through clubs, camps, and curriculum.

Website Development

We will show you how to build your very own website using HTML5, CSS/SASS, JavaScript, and even a little PHP.
