As a teacher organization we strive to improve the learning environment for our students both inside and outside the classroom. There are many active non-profit organizations across Ontario that offer coding, robotics, and STEM learning opportunities for K-12 students.
The following organizations have either presented at our annual conference or ACSE members have been directly involved in their student outreach programs in some capacity.
