On June 14, 2017 at Corpus Christi Catholic Secondary School, and June 15 at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School, students in Grades 4-6 from elementary schools across the HCDSB came together to showcase their "Coding Quests".

Students were able to create and test out their own video games using an online platform called Scratch​.  

On June 14 and 15, students had the opportunity to showcase their booths in the Corpus Christi cafeteria, presenting an overview of their game and its code. A laptop was set up at each booth for Corpus Christi students and staff to visit and test out the games.

Exciting student-led games included the "Doughnut Maze" created by Elle and Cecilia from St. Christopher Catholic Elementary School, and "Pikachu's Adventure" created by Alex from Canadian Martyrs Catholic Elementary School.

With the support of The Learning Partnership, teachers were trained this past year to use the free online program Scratch - a 21st Century educational programming language and online community where students can learn to program and use interactive media such as stories, games, and animation.

As students learned to use Scratch, they were able to work on their problem solving skills to build, create, and test out their own interactive games.

Students were excited to share their efforts with their classmates, and thoroughly enjoyed spending a day at the Coding Quest Arcade. Congratulations to all of our Junior Coders on a job well done!
