Sylvan Learning Centres in Ontario joins mission to introduce students to computer science

Nov 14, 2015
Computers are everywhere, but fewer enrichment Centres and schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Girls and minorities are severely underrepresented. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this.

With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. Over 100 partners joined together to support this movement. Last year, every Apple Store in the world hosted an Hour of Code and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.

That is why eight Sylvan Learning Centres of the Greater Toronto Area are joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Dec. 7-13, 2015.

North Toronto, Toronto, Ontario
Rosedale, Toronto, Ontario
Etobicoke, Ontario
Markham, Ontario
Pickering, Ontario
Erin Mills, Mississauga, Ontario
Beaches, Toronto, Ontario
Vaughan, Maple, Ontario

Contact your local Sylvan Learning Centre by phone or e-mail to request for the date and time of their Hour of Code.

The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a statement that today’s generation of students are ready to learn critical skills for 21st century success. Please join us; call 1-800-EDCUATE or e-mail your local Sylvan Learning Centre.
