We provide programs that have kid-friendly formats, which means your child will take on highly interactive challenges, tasks and activities that present new and interesting ideas every week.
Modern Skills for Modern Kids
Fun is the name of the game with our Coding for Kids courses in Prince Edward Island, but that's not all: they're also the perfect way for your child to learn about and develop vital 21st century skills. In fact, the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills we emphasize are increasingly demanded as the digital world continues to grow. Your child will have a great time making digital animations and creating video games — tasks that include important problem solving, programming and basic coding skills.
Play and Learn? Now You Can!
Coding for Kids boosts confidence! 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. 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, 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:
- Develop critical 21st century skills such as logic, programming and computational competencies
- Learn how to animate, create characters, and add sounds and visual effects using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology
- Create mini-stories and work towards a finished video game that can be played with friends
