LYNX coding software is available at no cost to engage youth across Canada.

We work with educators and other community members to co-design curriculum activities & Coding Challenges —including for the popular micro:bits!


We don't just focus on

"learning to code"

We are interested in "coding to learn" by supporting activities in diverse subject areas and in leveraging coding activities to meet broad curricular goals.

Start Using Lynx at lynxcoding.org

Lynx is a text-based, cloud-based programming platform that is the natural next step for kids that are ready to move on from using blocks to code but might not be quite ready to use complex programming languages like Python or JavaScript.

Think of it as a stepping stone!

Projects made with Lynx are easily shareable.

LYNX was designed by Canadians and is in Canadian English and French. It will be translated into several indigenous languages in 2020-2021.

Note: Our previous versions of MicroWorlds are available here.

MicroWorlds JR is in Ojibwe & James Bay Cree. But, please note the OS requirements.
