The Canada Learning Code organization is currently preparing the first-ever Canada Programming Week to be held from 1er to June 8. During this week, Canadians will be invited to learn to code using Scratch software.

In fact, with the Canada Week in Programming, the organization wishes to bring as many people as possible to carry out programming projects Scratch throughout the week, whether in schools, libraries, community centers, museums and other public places.

In addition to making the world of code known to a wider audience, the organization wishes to bring Canadian history to life and celebrate it through a technological project. The final objective is to publish a digital album bringing together all the projects on 1er July 2017, on the occasion of the 150e Canada's birthday.

The organization emphasizes that participants do not need to know the code in advance in order to participate. "We will provide teachers with educational resources and train them to give programming lessons to enable them to bring home stories to life through technology", we read on the website of the organization.

Participants will also be able to win laptops for their classroom or community.

If you are interested in the initiative, you can now signify your interest for the Week by indicating whether you want to run a programming class, teach one, volunteer during a class, participate in a class as a learner or even sponsor one.

Canada Programming Week is organized for the Canada 150, by Canada Learning Code, in partnership with the Department of Canadian Heritage and Boeing.
