  • Inclusive, adaptable and easily integrated into existing lesson plans
  • Students in Grades 4 to 8 learn to code their own video game or story following a simplified engineering design process using block-based coding
  • The new and improved Coding Quest replaces Coding Trek for students in Grades 1 to 3, who explore, create and build coding skills with the delightful Dash robot in Dash’s Neighbourhood
  • After registering, teachers have easy access to live virtual training and a dashboard full of resources including well-organized lesson plans and activities with clear curriculum connections 
  • The new and improved Coding Quest requires less teaching time and enables students to engage in deep learning by working individually or in groups

The new and improved Coding Quest for Grades 1 to 3 uses a fun, new platform for exploring, creating and learning!

A flexible program that meets important learning outcomes

Coding Quest offers teachers and students their choice of themes: story-telling for Grades 1 to 3 and story-telling or game design for Grades 4 to 8.

Each theme requires four to five hours of direct instruction and comes with a full set of lesson plans and hands-on activities.

Coding Quest helps students develop global competencies such as critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, communication and collaboration. By the end of the Grade 4 to 8 program, students can:

  • Demonstrate that they know the fundamentals of the engineering design process
  • Use coding skills and language
  • Understand basic storytelling and computer game development
  • Use coding as a tool for creating and problem-solving
  • Understand problems and solutions as a sequence of small steps (computational thinking)
  • Communicate with purpose their project during a virtual showcase
