We believe that coding is an essential skill for helping students thrive in a technology-driven future. Learning to code unlocks creativity, fosters collaboration, develops problem-solving skills, and opens career paths.
Join us to learn about Everyone Can Code — free resources from Apple that introduce students ages 8 + to the world of coding through project-based classroom learning. We will explore lessons in the student and teacher guides, and dive into interactive coding puzzles and activities for both in and out of the classroom.

Having an iPad or MacBook that is loaded with the Swift Playgrounds App is recommended for this session.  You can download Swift Playgrounds here:   https://www.apple.com/ca/swift/playgrounds/

For the session we will be working with Learn to Code 1, MeeBot Dances, and Learn to Code 2.  If you are not familar with how to install these playgrounds, please check out the video tutorial that I created to help guide you through the process of installing them:
