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.▼
Play and Learn? Now You Can!
Our Coding for Kids programs are a real confidence booster! 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 take part in a wrap-up activity to end each session, which ensures the skills he or she has picked up can be strengthened and reinforced. 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.
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!
