What Are C.O.D.E. Workshops?

The C.O.D.E. Initiative workshops are for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) aged 8-15. This initiative is led by students from The University of British Columbia (UBC). Through this program, we hope to inspire students with ASD to explore their immense potential. The workshops provide a fun and interactive introduction to various beginners coding and hardware concepts. 

In this workshop, the students will be exposed to one of the various applications of coding through robotics. The students will get to assemble a LEGO Mindstorm Robot, and program it according to the activity of the day. The various concepts of programming will come into play as the students work together to program these robots. These activities will strongly focus on problem-solving skills, as well as growing their creativity. 

These workshops offer a 1:1 teacher to student ratio to provide students with a comfortable learning environment where they can develop their coding and problem-solving skills. This ratio ensures that students can move at their own pace to gain the most out of the tailored experience. The robotics workshops will also have a group component, designed to teach children team-work


August 12 - August 16 (weekdays) from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm.


The workshops will be at the Wesbrook Community Centre, UBC. 

Address: 3335 Webber Ln, Vancouver, BC V6S 0H3

What To Bring?

Students are highly encouraged to bring their own laptops. The model or year of the device does not matter. This is so that the students can practice the application we teach in class, at home.

If however, your child cannot bring a device, please do tell us and we will accommodate. 

Future Workshops?

There will be more workshops throughout the year. Information regarding upcoming workshops will be available in November 2019.
