What can EduCode™ do for my camp?
Some of the fondest memories from our youth were made over summer break. How would you like to give all your campers the chance to join the next generation of innovators this summer, while creating memories that will last a lifetime at your camp?
EduCode™ allows you to create an immersive environment where campers can dive headfirst into university-level computer science, even those as young as 10. As they follow along cinematic animated tutorials and real-world coding projects, you will empower them to discover and unleash their potential this summer. On top of programming languages, they will learn essential 21st century skills such as computational thinking, digital literacy, critical-thinking and problem solving.
Imagine a world where any child will not only use technology, but also create it. Best of all, you and your staff can make this a reality, with zero prior training or experience in computer science.
Potential ImpactIf students as young as Grade 4 begin learning computer science through EduCode™, they will possess the equivalent of a Bachelor of Computer Science degree by the time they graduate high school. Even with a little computer science knowledge, it could:
Enable youth to gain well-paying, fulfilling summer jobs.
Start careers right after graduation, without going to university.
Elevate living standards of disadvantaged youth.
Inspire youth to use tech skills for entrepreneurship.
What’s Included In EduCode™ Content?
EduCode™ is a web-based software that guides both learners and teachers through a microlearning computer science curriculum developed by university educators. It is designed to be equivalent to what’s taught in a Bachelor of Computer Science, tailored to a grade-school comprehension level.
Lessons begin with cinematic tutorial videos, animated in-house, with captivating storylines that will not only educate but also entertain. A series of gamified real-world projects allow learners to interact with the story and characters, while applying their knowledge and skills by solving problems with computer code. This blend of play and study makes EduCode™ is so immersive that previous school students have reported continuing EduCode™ beyond the allotted class time.
The Self-Directed Gamified STEM Learning ExperienceMicrolearning, cinematic story-based videos and immersive projects distills and contextualizes university-level computer science for children as young as 10 on a large-scale. This way, students will not only learn WHAT information is being taught, but also WHY it is relevant.

Frequently Asked Questions
When can I start?
You choose when it’s convenient for you and your campers start and stop. Spread your sessions out over 10 weeks or pack them into an intensive week or two of coding. It’s up to you.
Do I need coding experience or computer science experience to participate?
No. EduCode™ is designed for users with zero computer science knowledge or experience.
Is professional development required?
EduCode™ is learn as you go. Based on modern pedagogies that prove how “deep learning” is achieved when students and teachers learn together, EduCode™ helps demonstrate that learning is a life-long process.
Getting started is as easy as logging in, pressing “play”, following along, and going at your own pace.
Teachers will have both a “student” and “teacher” log-in to learn along with students. We recommend that teachers stay one step ahead of the students and familiarize themselves with the content by simply completing the online course in advance of the class.
What kind of support is offered?
A Quick Start Guide – A step-by-step guide to help you set up EduCode™ for your class.
Email Support – Contact us at our dedicated support email for general and technical help.
Solutions Tab – When accessing the courses in Teacher mode, you can view the complete answer for each exercise to help your students.
Live Help - EduCode™ offers a Live Help chat feature supported by a remote team of computer science educators. Teachers can get immediate help themselves or enable the chat feature on any student’s device with a click of the mouse. A remote computer science educator can view a student’s screen and provide interactive feedback and guidance as needed.
Can I use EduCode™ even if I do not have a device for every student?
Yes. The EduCode™ team is interested in learning how this program works in all types of computing environments.
What grade levels can participate?
Grade 4 to Grade 10.
The EduCode™ Introduction to Programming course was originally designed for middle school students, however, we have found students as young as fourth grade are enjoying the lessons.
What will users be learning?
How much time will it require?
Completion time depends on how often EduCode™ is used and the age of users, however it’s designed to accommodate the user’s learning pace and the needs of different lesson plans and learning programs. EduCode™ is internet-based and available 24/7 from any device.
Will any user information be shared with a third party?
Information collected during the pilot will be used by the design team to create changes to the system.
No names will be shared. During the grant period, EduCode™ Academy will collect usage information and your comments and observations, but no personal information will be tied to the feedback without your specific approval.
All personal information stored in the EduCode™ software database is encrypted and cannot be read.
If others are interested in EduCode™ what should they do?
Just let us know by sending us a message on our 'Contact Us' page.
What types of reporting will I have access to?
You will have access to student and class usage data and progress reports.
How do you maintain user privacy? Do you retain or track personal information?
