Free Coding Workshops for Youth

Michelle Mak Daily Life, Newcomer Information

Schulich Ignite is a free 8-week program that introduces high school students to the fundamentals of coding. No experience is required to join! These sessions are led by University of Calgary student mentors.

During these weekly sessions, you will learn the fundamentals of coding with lots of hands-on experience. You are grouped with a mentor who can help you out with your learning experience (and give you general advice as a university student as well).

The sessions will run for 1 hour and 30 minutes. You can sign up for one of the following options:

  • Option 1: Tuesdays from 6:30pm – 8:00pm, starting on October 20th and ending on December 8th.
  • Option 2: Saturdays from 11:00am – 12:30pm, starting on October 17th and ending on December 5th.
