21st Century Learning
Rainbow Schools are inspiring the next generation of engineers and designers.
Students are learning to code, producing video games, programming robots and building objects with 3D printers and state-of-the-art software in innovative maker spaces and high-tech labs.
By developing a series of sequences steps or algorithms to accomplish a task, students engage in computational thinking, creating rather than consuming technology.
In the process, students acquire essential skills and global competencies – critical thinking and problem solving; innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship; self-directed learning; collaboration; communication and citizenship.
Rainbow Schools are proud to offer incubators for ideas in modern learning environments that immerse students in the world of technology to imagine and create.
Coding encourages students to get involved in the STEAM sector – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics – and prepares them for the workforce of tomorrow.

- Chelmsford Valley District Composite School
- Confederation Secondary School
- Espanola High School
