Thanks to a collaboration with the Haskell Library, the Phelps’ Mentoring program benefited from a visit with Code Mobile last week. The Code Mobile initiative began in 2016. They transformed a cargo van into a computer lab on wheels, complete with all the tools needed to host pop-up workshops in communities big and small across the country! Each Code Mobile is powered by a regional Code Squad whose mission is to put technology in the hands of Canadian youth who may not otherwise have the experience.
Hosted at the Haskell Library, 14 students from the Phelps’ mentoring program aged 10 - 16 learned some basic computer programming and had a chance to build, not just consume, technology.
At Phelps, we value our partnerships as these help us to provide a variety of activities to local youth. Thank you to the Haskell Library and Code Mobile for introducing some of our Stanstead area students to the awesome world of code.
