How much does attending Codecreate cost?


All of the events are absolutely free, including lunch! In some communities, students will have to bring their own laptops in order to participate. Please check the city's registration page to confirm.

Who is Codecreate for?


Students between the ages of 8 to 18 attending primary or secondary school in BC. 10% of participant seats for each event will also be allocated to teachers who are members of CUEBC.

Why are you hosting Codecreate?


We are hosting Codecreate in celebration the Hour of Code, the global computer science and digital literacy awareness campaign during December 7 to 13, 2015. As the technology sector grows in BC and computational thinking and digital literacy becomes increasingly important in the 21st century, we think every student in BC should have the opportunity to learn computer science.

What is the Hour of Code campaign?


The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 40 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104. For more information about the Hour of Code, visit hourofcode.com/ca.

The student who is registering has never coded before. How much coding knowledge does the student need before registering?


None! The curriculum is specifically designed for beginners who have very little or no prior coding knowledge. However, the student must know how to operate a computer independently and have adequate spelling skills as a pre-requesite to participate.

What does the student need to bring?


In some communities, the student will need to bring their own laptop. Please check the city's registration page to confirm. A parent or guardian will also need to accompany the student during registration and promptly pickup the student after the workshop ends.

I'm a parent or guardian and I want to attend the Codecreate workshop with my child. Can I participate?


It depends on the event host and the capacity available at the venue. Please check with the event host for your city when you register.

Who should register the student for Codecreate?


The parent or guardian of the student must register for the event and accept the terms and conditions for the event prior to the student's participation.
