These interactive programs make it fun for elementary and middle school children to develop skills they can use for life, as well as make new friends while creating their very own video games.

Help Your Child Level Up
Our Coding for Kids courses in Alberta aren’t only a lot of fun: they’re also an effective way for your child to start developing crucial skills for the 21st century. In fact, by emphasizing sought-after skills in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), we prepare students to succeed in an increasingly digital world. Your child will be developing important programming and coding skills as he or she has a blast creating digital animations and video games.
Build Games. Build Confidence!
Our Coding for Kids courses boost confidence! Every class is built around a clear objective and outcome, which means your child will progress towards a goal and be excited to talk about his or her achievements each week. There are also wrap-up activities to finish each session, which helps your son or daughter reinforce the new skills he or she has discovered. 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:
- Learn how to create animations and add characters, sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Create mini-stories and a video game that can be played with friends
- Gain increasingly important 21st century skills — from programming to logic — while advancing his or her own project
- Collaborate with peers and meet new friends!
