Coding Quest

Coding Quest challenges students in grades four to six to build their own educational computer game in the classroom following a simplified engineering design process using block-based coding.

Coding Quest embeds science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) education, introduces computational thinking and develops global competencies, such as critical thinking, communications and collaboration.

Teachers are supported by a program manager and with resources, including lesson plans and activities that are connected to provincial curricula.

The program culminates in a Coding Quest Arcade, where students showcase their games and deliver their elevator pitch.
