Science World’s mission is to empower children in BC to be inspired by science and for educators to be equipped to cultivate that interest. This includes robust digital literacy – but there is a serious lack of resources available for children in BC and their teachers to learn these skills. Science World used funding from CIRA to develop and deliver Tech-Up 3.0, a free series of digital skills workshops for students in grades K-12 across the province, on topics such as AI, machine learning, coding, modeling and robotics.


The project was a huge hit, with 788 workshops reaching more than 19,000 students, including children in Indigenous, rural, and remote communities. 86% of participants expressed that the workshops had increased their interest in learning more about coding and other digital skills, while 83% of teachers who attended training felt significantly more comfortable bringing digital skills lessons into the classroom.
