Our kid-friendly format allows children to experience visual, interactive tasks and activities that offer new and exciting challenges each and every week.
Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Our Coding for Kids courses in British Columbia aren’t just big on fun: they’re also a great way for your child to build critical 21st century skills. Focusing on in-demand STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills, we equip students with competencies that can help them thrive in an ever-growing digital world. Your child will have a blast creating video games and animated stories while developing vital problem solving, programming and basic coding skills along the way.
Build Games. Build Confidence!
Our Coding for Kids courses boost confidence! 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. On top of that, you will get a link to your child’s weekly programming project, so you can see all the exciting things he or she is up to and share his or her wonderful work with family and friends.
