Code Kids

Code Kids documents a grass roots movement led by a handful of citizens in New Brunswick, Canada as they try to inspire students, educators, policy-makers and the general public to embrace technology in primary and middle schools. Best practices are shared from Estonia and Finland that would eventually lead to a shift in how kids are taught and inspired in New Brunswick.
