Programming to develop young people’s interest in STEM

Coding is a great way to develop fundamental skills such as logic and mathematics. Here are a few activities to fire up young people’s imaginations and get them interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. From elementary school to university, our partners work hard to develop kids’ scientific minds and spark their interest in science and technology by providing activities in Quebec classrooms and public places the whole family can access. 

Coding workshops in Quebec’s public schools and libraries

By Digital Moment

Level: Elementary
Location: Quebec schools and libraries*

Digital Moment is a bilingual Canadian non-profit organization aimed at giving every child access to an education in digital skills, especially girls and underserved communities. The organization offers free introductory activities in schools and public spaces, allowing young people to explore coding and revel in its infinite possibilities. These events are the ideal way for students, teachers and the whole family to learn something new together.

As an early partner of this non-profit organization, Ubisoft is proud to support the rollout of the Code Québec initiative which introduced programming to nearly 600 teachers and 15,000 kids by end of 2022.

Free digital kits to introduce students to programming

By Réseau Technoscience

Level: Elementary and high school
Location: Primary and high schools, public libraries and youth centres* in Quebec

For 50 years, Réseau Technoscience’s goal has been to get young people across Quebec interested in science and technology. With its strong regional connections, every year this organization has introduced nearly 3,000 primary and high school students to programming with digital kits that are available to classroom teachers for free.

Explore—Life-Sized Science

By Montreal Science Centre

Level: All ages
Location: Montreal Science Centre

The Explore exhibition at the Science Centre is the new permanent exhibition that allows you to delve into the science behind motion, air, light, water, geometry and matter, and even experiment with code in highly interactive and entertaining spaces.

Ubisoft Education is the proud partner of this exhibition, particularly the code zone, which will allow young people to explore the fundamentals of programming and coding.

Whatever their career interests, basic STEM skills will be fundamental for young people to achieve their professional dreams. That’s why Ubisoft Education supports initiatives that develop creativity, cooperation, critical thinking, problem-solving, computer thinking and empathy, and that call on the expertise of Ubisoft employees.
