Coding Quest is Canada’s largest classroom-based coding program challenging students in Grades 4 to 6 to build their own computer game in the classroom.
Through this free experiential learning program, teachers are trained to apply coding to a range of subject areas in the classroom, helping students to strengthen core global competencies and computational thinking, including critical thinking, creative problem-solving, collaboration and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills. An in-service training, curriculum-linked resources, step-by-step lesson plans and ongoing support are provided for teachers.
Guided by their teachers, students collaborate to research a topic and apply their knowledge of that topic within the design of their computer game. The program culminates in an Arcade event, where students showcase their computer games to the public.
