Code Mobile rolls into Brantford

BRANTFORD, ONResidents of all ages can learn to code this summer. Code Mobile, a computer lab on wheels, will be stopping in the City of Brantford to offer free interactive classes to teach computer programming and software code.

Code Mobile is a Canadian initiative to inspire and educate people of all ages to become passionate builders – not just consumers of technology. Code Mobile has visited over 250 cities and taught more than 140,000 people across Canada since launching in 2016.

Coding is cited as being one of the most relevant skills that can lead people to better employment outcomes and self-empowerment. Research also shows that children who learn code improve their creativity and math skills and are better prepared for jobs in today’s market. 

Providing access to unique learning opportunities is a key focus of the City’s healthy aging and youth services strategies. “We are excited to offer Code Mobile classes to children, youth, and adults in Brantford. We hope participants learn more about different types of technology that can support their employment and educational goals.” says Gagan Batra, Community Development Coordinator for Health and Human Services with the City of Brantford. “
