1 KIDS LEARNING CODE: LUNCH +AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

2 We love technology, and want to teach others. With the help of developers, designers and professional educators, we ve created content that not only showcases beginner friendly concepts, but also ideas to be excited about. In-School Lunch and After Overview Founded by the Ladies Learning Code team in 2012, Kids Learning Code and Girls Learning Code aims to turn youth into creators - not just consumers - of technology and the web. We help girls and boys : We provide the necessary tools, girls and boys provide the creativity. With a maximum class size of 30 students, our goal is to combine personalities, interests and skills to create an environment where everyone feels welcome, comfortable and confident in original thinking. What s Included What s Required - Creative students excited to learn and share their ideas - Classroom and/or computer lab space (computers may be provided by us if necessary) - A teacher to be our main point of contact School Programs 1. Discover a passion for learning about technology 2. Experience the satisfaction that comes from being a builder not just consumer of the web and technology 3. Become more confident and self assured 4. Develop a willingness to try new things 5. Increase their knowledge of technology related careers Our lunch time and after school programs are aimed at girls and boys in grades 3-5 and , 10 or 12 week long programs that are co-ed or all girls hour sessions once a week - 30 student capacity, 18 student minimum - Content with a focus on collaborative and interactive learning - Content delivered by one of our expert lead instructors and two technical mentors for a 10:1 student to instructor ratio, or better! our programs start at $160 per student + tax - All supplies and materials

3 Programs We have a wide range of program themes that a lunch time or after school program can focus on. We re always open to collaboration though if there s something your students are specifically interested in learning more about. Webmakers Weekday + PA Day Workshops We also offer full-day P.A. day, weekday or weekend programs (for both students and teachers). Possible topics include: - Minecraft For creative and curious students who would like to learn more about the web as they create their own websites about topics and issues interesting to them. Students will learn how to use HTML and CSS with Mozilla Thimble and Webmaker. Each week, students will present their progress to the group and work together to discover ways that will help each website grow and change. This program is all about unleashing creativity, and by the end of the program, each student will be able to confidently create and re-mix websites and independently troubleshoot their webrelated issues. Students will have a fantastic website and will be advocates for how the web can make a difference in their own lives and for the rest of the world. for each camper to see and experience. Over the course of our time together, students will learn all about basic design principles, character interaction techniques, as well as appropriate audio integration to make our games engaging and easy-to-understand. Digital Journalism accompany their stories. They will also learn how to create audio and video podcasts using a variety of technology. By the end of this program, students will have the skills to display information in new ways, and feel inspired to research already existing topics and push the standards of digital journalism. Inventors - Webmakers - Gamemakers - Circuits and Code - 3D Printing - Generative Art and Data Visualization - Digital Journalism - And much more! Gamemakers From computers, to outside on the playground games are everywhere enabling our brains to critically think and be immersed in fun environments! In this program, we encourage students to grow from consumers of games to creators. Through individual and teambased exercises, students will brainstorm modern day game ideas and be able to apply everyday problem solving skills and creative ideas in a fun environment. Using beginner level programming interfaces that encourage mathematical and computational skills, imagination will come to life on screen In this program, students will dive right into the importance of digital journalism, and learn how storytelling through photos, video, and data visualizations and code can impact a consumer becoming educated on a specific topic. We ll also discuss how social media plays an important role in how people gather and interact with information, and why it s important to pay attention to these statistics from a journalist s point of view. While strengthening their media literacy and critical thinking skills, students will use blogging tools, HTML and CSS, and data visualization tools to develop short articles and create infographics to This program is for your most creative and imaginative students. Individually or in small groups, they will leverage technology to brainstorm, research, prototype, and build a creation that will help change the world. Through hands-on project-based learning, students will be encouraged to think outside the box and work alongside supportive lead instructors and mentors to make their ideas come to life. During our time together, students will create their own website coded from scratch about invention ideas, a basic prototype using a 3D printer or other materials for their chosen invention - an invention that is ready to be used in the real world.

4 Learner Stories + Other Programs Here s what some of our learners say about our programs: Ines - Age 9 Kids + Girls Learning Code Camper Programs for Educators Curriculum Based Technology Lessons I m really passionate about history and books. Before Girls Learning Code, I didn t really go online. I d use my grandfather s computer almost every day to print books. I used Microsoft Word and wrote what I was thinking, pressed the print button, and I would kind of have a book. From camp, I have learned about HTML & CSS, and I learned that you need a website to spread the news about your business. From Game Makers camp, I built a game called Virus Blaster on Scratch where a doctor has to capture viruses before they kill everyone. At Inventors camp, we were inventing things using a bunch of arts and crafts materials and we had to be really creative figuring out which materials to use to solve a different problem every day. I also really liked Digital Journalism camp too - when I heard about it I got really excited because my grandfather is a journalist. I went home and talked to him about what I learned after camp and I found out that he didn t know about the Mozilla Webmaker so he didn t really know how to make a website. His clients were making the websites instead. I feel a lot more creative now from camp. And speaking of being creative, last week I even managed to make warm fuzzies for everyone, all the kids and mentors, and they were all really different. Farah - Age 8 Kids + Girls Learning Code Camper I wanted to learn about computers and how to make websites. I used to think technology was more difficult, for example, Makey Makey is a type of technology that I used to think was hard, but now I think it s so easy to do. Now technology looks much easier to me but I know I ve only seen the basics. I m more interested now and what I really want to grow up to be is a scientist or artist. I didn t really What is a Warm Fuzzy? They are heart-felt notes that make us feel good - notes about how awesome, creative and smart we are. The kids are encouraged to write these notes throughout our programs and drop them in their Warm Fuzzy bag. It acts as memento of the awesome time spent together. use technology at home, I only used my computer and sometimes my ipad to play games. After I learned how to use Scratch at camp, I actually made a game, learned how to make many websites and how to be an entrepreneur. At Design camp, I ve learned lots of things and we did lots of crafts that kept my brain going. At design camp I designed a waterpark and race course, that was my best thing because we all collaborated together. I had a great experience making warm fuzzies and collaborating with each other, it was really fun. What is Makey Makey? An invention kit designed for kids who are interested in exploring how a computer works in a hands-on way. Using the Makey Makey board, a set of alligator clips and anything conductive, kids learn all about physical circuits and how to implement them in new and engaging forms. Train the Trainer Programs We love visiting schools and meeting new learners, but we also feel it is important to empower teachers and youth to feel comfortable sharing this knowledge themselves. For this reason, we also have created programs to help train the trainer, which support educators and older youth to question and learn how to create and implement new technology curriculum within their schools. Some of these efforts include: Spinning the Web, a partnership with Maker Kids to create technology lessons to support existing Ontario approved curriculum across different educational fields. Making Makers, a comprehensive maker curriculum for educators who work in formal and informal learning environments with the objective of increasing Toronto youth access to and engagement with advanced technology and digital tools. If you are interested in being part of this change and learning about creative ways to implement digital literacy into existing curriculum, please get in touch. Contact us for more information!
