We Are EduCode™ Academy
EduCode™ Academy empowers kids to learn how to code independently through online self-directed coding courses.
We blend cinematic storytelling in tutorial videos and microlearning in bite-sized real-world projects to provide a truly
immersive and enjoyable learning environment for coding and computer science, perfect for kids 10 and above.
What Makes EduCode™ Academy Different?Blockly coding and text-based coding are the two most common methods used today. Most programs are restricted
to either one of them. EduCode™ Academy blends the best of both worlds, without any of their limitations.

Todays WorldThe facts & numbers
IT is one of the most under-represented and least taught academic subjects in the United States and Canada. At the
same time, the demand for high school graduates with skills in programming and computer science is at an all-time high.
To fill this gap, our organization aims to facilitate the introduction of computer science to kids in primary, middle
and high schools, so that they can dive into the amazing world of computer science from age 10. Like learning
languages, we believe that it is crucial to start at an early age as that is when our minds are most open to new concepts.
Below are some facts and figures that highlight the need for schools in North
America to adopt computer science programs and curriculums on a large scale:
  • In 2020, 1 million programming jobs will potentially go vacant in North America.
  • According to IDC, Canada had 54,000 unoccupied jobs related to technology
    and computer programming in 2015. This will rise to 182,000 by 2019.
  • New Brunswick will end up with 2,200 unfilled jobs in the ICT sector over the next 5 years.
  • In less than 5 years, a staggering 60% of jobs will be computer related.
  • 20% of careers in 5 to 10 years do not exist yet.
  • Today, less than 2% of university students choose computer science programs.
To illustrate, in 2014, only 108 students were recruited by Procter & Gamble, General Motors and Dow Chemical. 30 years earlier,
they had recruited 340 graduates. Why? Our youth no longer graduate with the skills that these companies are looking for.
A third of Canadian IT companies have confirmed that there are not enough qualified
Canadians to fill job openings and they must hire workers from overseas to fill these positions.
Our mission is to equip the next generation of innovators with the skills to build a better future!
