Canadian School Bahrain (CSB) has announced a strategic partnership with Reboot Coding Institute (Reboot01), a pioneering educational establishment in Bahrain. This collaboration aims to revolutionise digital skills training for students, aligning with Bahrain’s Vision 2030 for a knowledge-based economy.
Under this partnership, led by CSB's Head of the Executive Committee, Mariam Al Kooheji, and Reboot01’s Managing Director, Yanal Jallad, students will have access to a cutting-edge technology curriculum developed in collaboration with the globally renowned 01Edu. This programme is designed to foster proficiency in full-stack software development.
The Three-Year Programme
The innovative curriculum, exclusive to CSB, offers a comprehensive learning journey over three years for students in grades 4 through 12, with each year tailored to progressively advanced skill levels. The first year introduces students to coding fundamentals through engaging platforms like Scratch and ROBLOX. The curriculum emphasises practical skills like game development, project-based learning, and computational thinking.
In the second year, students can delve into animation and design, web development, and block-based robotics, depending on the resources available. This phase aims to build on the foundational skills acquired in the first year, introducing students to more complex concepts and practical applications.
The third year offers an optional, advanced programme focusing on mobile and web development, data science, machine learning, and cybersecurity. This stage is designed to equip students with specialised skills, preparing them for future careers in technology and digital innovation.
