Brian Aspinall is an educator and best selling author and is considered one of the brightest STEM innovators in education.
Code Breaker Inc. began in 2010 as a consulting business owned and operated by Brian Aspinall. As an elementary educator holding a degree in computer science, Aspinall sought out to highlight the importance of exposing young people to the principles of coding and computational thinking to prepare them for their rapidly changing future.
He was awarded the Canadian Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence for his work with coding and computational thinking. His enthusiasm, thought leadership, and approach to building capacity within STEM education has made him an asset to school communities who were fortunate to work with him.
As those in the education began to see how computer science and computational thinking met the needs of all students, the need for professional development grew. Aspinall’s work with his students was being noticed by school and district leaders, who in turn began inviting him to their schools and districts. These visits grew in frequency and soon after Aspinall found himself on the TEDx Stage and in front of international audiences sharing his message.
Considered one of the brightest STEM innovators in education, he now travels the globe speaking and leading professional development programs that inspire educators to create curious seeking individuals in classrooms built on a community of trust, risk-taking and a freedom to fail.
