Aidan Scott's looking forward it. He's off to a provincial skills competition in Toronto.
"What draws me to coding is the challenge of it and always being able to learn new things. That's kind of the draw of the competition. The opportunity to learn more and the challenge," he said.
Scott's hoping to study biomedical engineering at the University of Waterloo.
Scott's specialty is computer coding. Seven from Keewatin-Patricia are attending, including photographer Chris Mills, who hopes to become a graphic designer.
"It keeps me under pressure. It shows how I can use programs and use them quickly," he said.
The following students qualified for the provincial competition in early April:
Adam Coulombe of Queen Elizabeth District High School - Welding
