Below are different resources intended to continue experiential learning while we inhabit a virtual environment. We will be continuing to update this page over the next few months with more content.
Virtual CODEfest 2020
What is CODEfest?
CODEfest is a yearly summer event run by the Industry Education Council (IEC) in Partnership with Mohawk College. Grade 7 & 8 students are given the chance to complete interactive, hands-on coding activities. Our goal is to make students aware of their education and career options to help them set goals to pursue a career within the tech industry. We are working to offer CODEfest virtually this summer, and will continue to populate this site with updates, as well as content.

What is HackStudent?
HackStudent is a partnership between Mohawk College and HackStudent to provide students with experiential learning opportunities in the fields of cyber security, internet of things and extended reality.
Previously, we had held full day, in person sessions where students would listen to a guest speaker before going between our emerging technology labs for demonstrations and guided activities.
While we look to continue these in person activities in the future, we want to continue supporting students in the current virtual environment.

Women in Technology and Trades (WiTT) Curriculum Kits
What are WiTT Curriculum Kits?
A curriculum kit looks at how ideas concepts and ideas in science, engineering, math, and technology work together to help students engage with STEM based curriculum and virtualizations in small achievable tasks.
These kits are designed in concert with Women in Technology and Trades students at Mohawk College to ensure that the kits are interesting and appealing to a broad range of students.
What age groups are these kits for?
Each kit provides guidance on the materials needed, suggested activities, and advice for both faculty and students on what the kit will help students to learn, and how to start using the kit
Where possible, curriculum targets for appropriate age groups and skill levels will be identified for each kit, which can be used to demonstrate, guide project work, or enable independent study for age appropriate levels.
