Why Code?

Coding plays an increasingly indispensable part in people’s lives. Every software program requires a code to function. Many of our household appliances and even our electronic devices require a coded program to work. The IT industry is booming now and has recently seen a great increase in high salary jobs. The future prospects of coding related jobs opportunities look very promising. Coding integrates different subjects, like math and literacy and involves essential skills like critical thinking, problem solving and reasoning. It is an effective way for students to improve in various aspects and become a well rounded learner.

Why is coding important?

There are many benefits to coding. It is a great opportunity for students to strengthen their problem-solving, critical thinking, analytical and reasoning skills by understanding and implementing algorithms. It is also an opportunity for students to enhance their creativity, perseverance and to be able to come back from a failure. Students will improve on Math and literacy skills by designing their own code and by pursuing innovative ideas and solutions. They also get a chance to participate in internationally recognized contests like Canadian Computing Competition (CCC) hosted by University of Waterloo which will strengthen their university application preparation and presents a great opportunity for students to network with like-minded individuals.
