Blast Into Bigger Fun With Coding for Kids

Looking for one of the hottest after-school programs around? You’ve got it with Coding for Kids, our innovative courses for elementary and middle-schoolers that teach computer programming skills through interactive and exciting projects. These fun classes are perfect for kids who have great imaginations, like figuring out how things work or simply love technology.

In Coding for Kids, your son or daughter will have a blast creating video games, animated stories and bringing their imaginations to life. You don’t even have to mention all the cool skills he or she is learning along the way: basic coding and programming, problem solving, logic, physics and more. (We’ll never tell!) It’s a great way to get kids psyched about learning cool STEM skills.

How Coding for Kids works

Kids work with our advanced technology platform that’s intuitive and easy to use (no writing lines and lines of code here!) It’s a low stress setting in which your child works at his or her own pace with the support and encouragement of a teacher. Every class has a distinct objective and outcome, so your future computer whiz will work toward a goal and feel a great sense of accomplishment!

During each session, your son or daughter:

  • Learns how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects using our intuitive, kid-friendly Tynker™ technology.
  • Develops mini-stories and builds the skills to design a final video game that he or she can play with friends.
  • Experiments and troubleshoots on his or her programming project, developing important problem solving, logic and computational skills.
  • Collaborates with other kids to challenge and learn from each other — making friends along the way.

At the end of each coding class, your child enjoys a wrap-up activity to reinforce the skills he or she learned that day. Plus, you also get a link to the projects completed by your child, so you can see and share his or her amazing work with friends and family! Coding for Kid is a great way to build life-long impact with 21st century skills in a fun, cool way!
