On a Mission to teach kids to code
On January 19 from 8am to 10am, the Mission School District with Sumas Regional Consortium for High Tech (SRCTec) is hosting a coding camp. The event will teach local Grade 9 students basic coding skills.
Thirty students from the Mission School District will be taught by 11 mentors. SRCTec CEO Ray Szabada will be tutoring the students, with his team from i-Open Technologies. The first hour of the camp will cover the basics, and students will tackle a coding project during the second hour.
The Mission coding camp will be a remote version of the #BCTECH Summit coding camp at Lighthouse Labs in Vancouver. These coding camps are designed to pique students’ interest, as the Canadian technology sector grows across industries.
“We are very excited for this event because it’s the first of its kind in Mission and with the school district”, says Athena Leskun, Marketing Manager with SRCTec.
