Stem Program

Afro Canadian Development has initiated the STEM Program in collaboration with MakerKids for children and youths since January 2023. This program would not have been possible without the generous contributions of the CIBC Foundation. We are immensely grateful to the Foundation for believing in our vision and having faith in our STEM Project.

“Helping build a world without limits to ambition is a key focus of CIBC Foundation, and we are proud to partner with Afro Canadian Development Inc. providing children and youth access to STEM programs. Connecting children to these resources today may pave the way to future opportunities in the technology industry.”

  • Ronan Ryan, Executive Director, CIBC Foundation

Under this program, we offer free Coding, Robotics and Minecraft sessions.

Coding: In today’s tech-savvy world, coding is an essential language to learn. Given the growing need for STEM professionals, learning to code from a young age is a surefire way to stand out in today’s cutthroat job market. Our coding session aims to build coding skills in children and youths through fun and engaging coding sessions.

Robotics: Robotics sessions introduce and educate children and youth on the fundamentals of robotics and equip them with the essentials they need to create their own robots.

Minecraft: In our Minecraft camp, children and youth will learn the fundamentals of Minecraft, and how computers and servers function and collaborate with each other to make Minecraft even cooler.

** All the sessions are free**

**Accredited certificates and STEM tool kits will be provided to all the participating children upon completion of the sessions. **
