Sylvan’s Coding for Kids courses in Alaska are tailored for kids who love to be creative and imaginative — and who love playing with technology! 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. Our kid-friendly format allows children to experience visual, interactive tasks and activities that offer new and exciting challenges each and every week.
Boost Your Child's Skills and Potential
Our Coding for Kids courses in Alaska 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!
Our Coding for Kids courses boost 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. 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. 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
