These interactive courses help elementary and middle school kids have fun, get motivated and gain life-long skills as they create their very own video games. Our courses are delivered in a kid-friendly format, which means your child can enjoy highly visual and interactive activities and cool projects he or she will be psyched to work on each week.
Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Our Coding for Kids courses in British Columbia 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.▼
Build Games. Build Confidence!
Confidence is boosted with our Coding for Kids programs! There are clear goals and outcomes for every class, so your child will be excited and proud to share his or her progress each week. There are also wrap-up activities at the end of each session, which helps students consolidate the skills they've picked up in class. On top of that, we provide a link to your child’s weekly programming project, which allows you to be involved in his or her exciting progress and share it with family and friends.
You Can Expect Your Child To:
- Learn how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Develop mini-stories, working towards a final video game design that can be shared and played with friends
- Build important 21st century skills — including programming, logic and computational competencies — while experimenting with his or her own project
- Collaborate with other kids and make new friends!
