These interactive courses provide a fun and motivating way for elementary and middle school children to learn life-long skills while making new friends and designing their very own video game. We deliver our courses in a kid-friendly format, meaning your child can expect to enjoy highly interactive activities and take on cool challenges that he or she will be excited to resume each week.
Boost Your Child's Skills and Potential
Our Coding for Kids courses in Alberta are all about fun and excitement, but they also help kids gain critical 21st century skills. We focus on important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills that are increasingly needed for success in a growing digital world. So your child won't only have fun making video games and creating digital animations — he or she will also pick up essential coding, programming and problem solving skills along the way.
Building Games — and Confidence!
Confidence is boosted with our Coding for Kids programs! Each class has a clear objective and outcome, so your child will work toward a goal and be proud to share his or her accomplishments with you each week. Your child will also participate in a wrap-up activity at the end of each session, which will help strengthen the skills he or she learned in class. In addition, we provide a link to your child’s weekly project, allowing you to be a part of the exciting things he or she is doing — and share this wonderful work with friends and family.
During Each Session, Your Child Will:
- Create a video game and animated mini-stories that can be shared with friends
- Discover how to create animations, characters and effects using intuitive Tynker™ technology
- Develop 21st century skills, including computation, programming and logic
- Team up with other kids and meet new friends!
