What is CanUCode?

Canadian Universities Code Competition was started by Lighthouse Labs to promote digital literacy. CanUCode is based on an introductory coding curriculum geared towards creating a fun, accessible and supportive learn-to-code experience in the community. Digital learning is important and still making its way into education.
