What is Tech-Up?
Tech-Up is a Science World grant funded program sponsored by CanCode, Amazon, Mastercard, CIRA, NSERC, and the province of BC. The focus is on equipping Canadian youth with the skills they need to be prepared for further studies including advanced digital skills and STEM courses, leading to jobs of the future.
Through Tech-Up, Science World delivers province-wide programs. With an emphasis on "coding to learn", our Tech-Up facilitators are working to equip both youth and teachers with the digital skills, coding knowledge, and new technologies to solve real world problems and explore other content areas deeper using coding as a tool.
