Kids Code Jeunesse (KCJ) is a not-for-profit organization that brings computational thinking and computer programming to teachers and to kids aged 5-12 in communities and classrooms across Canada. As a KCJ partner from the beginning, Ubisoft is proud to support the launch and sustainability of 200 Code Clubs in public libraries for 8,000 kids by 2021 across Quebec.
Code MTL is a project that aims to encourage digital literacy in kids aged 5 to 12 through programming. With Ubisoft’s support, 3,240 students and teachers from the Commission scolaire de Montréal attended eight fun programming workshops last year. This year, another 3,240 students will take part in Code MTL’s coding workshops.
Fusion Jeunesse aims to help students learn more about video game technology and design through its video game creation project for Grade 5 and 6 students, with a view to empathy, peace education, and anti-bullying. This year, nearly 400 students were guided through the creation of an interactive story and a video game prototype with Ubisoft professionals.
Réseau Technoscience’s mission over the past 50 years has been to boost Quebec youth’s interest in science and technology. This year, Ubisoft joined this regional organization to introduce nearly 2,700 elementary school students to programming using digital kits offered for free to teachers.
