Discover Coding Zone was founded in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada by passionate technology and coding educators. We offer summer camps and after-school programs for kids aged 7 to 12.
We believe that computer science and coding are core, fundamental knowledge for the 21st century. Every child should have a chance to learn about algorithms, how to make an app, or how computers and the internet works. We strongly believe in the development of computational thinking as it helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success for the rest of their lives.
